Final Fantasy 14 is finally coming to Xbox

While Square Enix may have skipped Xbox with recent games like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 16, the publisher is finally throwing Microsoft a bone by bringing Final Fantasy 14 over to the console for the first time. 

Phil Spencer has publicly expressed a desire to get Final Fantasy 14 on Xbox multiple times over the years. At one point, it even looked like the MMO might finally arrive during the Xbox One generation but nothing came to fruition at that time. This will finally change in 2024, ahead of Final Fantasy 14's next major expansion.

At Final Fantasy 14 Fan Fest, Phil Spencer joined Final Fantasy 14 director, Naoki Yoshida, on stage to announce that Final Fantasy 14 is coming to Xbox Series X/S in Spring 2024. However, there will be an open beta beforehand, so we can expect more news on that soon.

Final Fantasy 14 is a subscription-based MMO, but there is a free trial for new accounts. The free trial is being improved too, with trial accounts now able to play through all of A Realm Reborn, Heavensward and Stormblood, getting characters up to level 70. To access more recent expansion content and reach the true level cap, you will need to subscribe but there are hundreds of hours worth of gameplay to get through before you reach that point.

Final Fantasy 14's next major expansion, Dawntrial, will launch day-one on Xbox alongside other platforms.

KitGuru Says: I've wanted to see Final Fantasy 14 on Xbox for a very long time, primarily because I prefer the smaller Xbox controller to the larger PlayStation DualSense gamepad. With the trial account version now offering so much more content, I could see a lot of new players looking to jump in for the first time.
