During its first dedicated live letter, it was also confirmed that patch 6.55 is slated to launch in mid-January 2024.
The two updates will deliver the final sets of main scenario quests, titled Growing Light, laying down the final bits of groundwork for the MMO's next expansion, Dawntrail.
Returning to Final Fantasy 14's patch 6.5 itself, a new dungeon called The Lunar Subterrane is on the way alongside a new Trial named The Abyssal Fracture as well as a new Unreal Trial, The Singularity Reactor.
The Myths of the Realm series of Alliance Raids is set to receive its third part, called Thaleia, while the entire Stormblood expansion will become part of the MMO's already expansive free trial, which is great news for new players.
The latter is further complemented by the Duty Support system being extended to also cover Stormblood's The Drowned City of Skalla, The Burn, and The Ghimlyt Dark dungeons.
A slate of job updates that cover both PvP and PvE are also expected. The Crystalline Conflict's eight season will only end when patch 6.51 goes live.
FFXIV's patch 6.5 also introduces updates to Island Sanctuary in the shape of new sanctuary ranks and visions, a new gathering area in the wilds, alongside new materials, craftables, animals, and more.
