Players whose FF XIV service account has a registered license for the PS4 version may download and play the PS5 update edition at no extra cost. The monthly subscription is still required.

While the event only included producer Naoki Yoshida and his translator, the PS5 version of Final Fantasy XIV was announced on the event through a surprise appearance of Yosuke Matsuda. The CEO of Square Enix. The whole reveal was packaged in a comedic skit with Yosuke Matsuda revealing the PS5 version and Naoki Yoshida acting as if he forgot to bring it up. It was pretty cringey overall if you understood Japanese. Though simultaneously if you studied the language and reach that point then you must definitely be used to that as well. Seeing Japanese TV or live events like these are always meticulously scripted.

Anyways, Yosuke Matsuda and Yoshida Naoki announced Final Fantasy XIV will be launching on PS5 with an Open Beta on April 13, 2021.

This is also when the next patch for Final Fantasy XIV will be released.
