Final Fantasy XIV will be offline for 24 hours next week due to NA data center upgrades
Nobody Panic: Final Fantasy XIV is upgrading data center hardware for North American players, which will all involve a significant chunk of downtime during which you can get outside and touch grass or maybe just take a nap. We are for a nap.
“To avoid potential errors in transferring data to the upgraded hardware, all worlds in all physical and logical data centers are undergoing maintenance” beginning Monday, April 3 at 6:00 a.m. EDT and continuing on April 4 ends at the same time. says Square Enix.
“All content on North American data centers (Aether/Crystal/Dynamis/Primal), including character data, will be automatically transferred to the new servers. No changes will be made to the data center/world selection screens or to character or world data. The physical location of all data centers will remain unchanged, and the utmost care will be taken by the FINAL FANTASY XIV development and operations teams to ensure that all data is transferred securely and successfully. Players do not need to take any action after this hardware update.”
Except for the naps, of course. And the patch 6.38 update will be waiting for you on the server on the 4th, so that’s it.
