Naoki Yoshida, the producer of Final Fantasy 14, has confirmed the next expansion for the game will be announced in October at Fan Festival (which takes place in Las Vegas). This information was revealed by Japanese website Game Watch (surprisingly, this website has nothing to do with us) in an interview with Yoshida. The interview spoke about upcoming patches to the game, as well as where the story may go now that the Dragonsong War has ended.

“I believe that we’ll see the big changes starting with Patch 3.5,” Yoshida said. “Similar to what we had in Patch 2.5 and 2.55, which I believe was a big pivot.” Final Fantasy 14 players shouldn’t expect to leave Ishgard too soon, according to Yoshida, “If anything, I believe they will be more involved with the Warrior of Light and the Scions, who helped end the war.”
