Players can now expect the upcoming expansion of the North American data center on November 1. This addition serves to reduce the congestion further, especially during peak periods. The new logical data center is named “Dynamis” and is going to initially consist of four new Worlds with plans to expand further in the future.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
