Square Enix expects servers to be overloaded
In the latest update the publisher explains that the MMORPG thanks to a “dramatic Increase in the player base in all regions since this summer ”has seen a“ record number of active users ”. The blog post also states that the global shortage of semiconductor chips meant that one was not able to add new worlds before the release of “Endwalker”.
Therefore, there will probably be server problems at the start of “Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker”. “There is a high likelihood that there will be a congestion that will cause the worlds to reach their maximum login capacity and long wait times to log in,” said Square Enix. “We apologize for making this type of announcement at a time when many of you are looking forward to the expansion.”
Problems should be contained
While Square Enix has not been able to add additional worlds, the company has taken various other steps to contain future problems as much as possible.
“Although we were not able to add new worlds, we took all other measures that were possible, such as replacing the relevant servers with more powerful machines, optimizing processes, increasing the processing speed and increasing the number of simultaneous logins “, it says.
