Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida has promised to address the housing issue plaguing the game in update 4.2.

Yesterday, update 4.1 was pushed to the live servers allowing players to purchase housing in the new Shirogane area, but the development team failed to offer up enough plots to cope with the demand. To add to the issues, the increased stress on the servers from people jumping on to grab a plot prevented players from using the new relocation feature, costing them a plot.

“While a great number of you were interested in either purchasing or relocating to a plot in Shirogane, we failed to prepare sufficient plots for players, and for that I deeply apologize,” Yoshida wrote. “This problem was only made worse by the increased stress on the servers from players rushing to log in after the end of maintenance. As a result, the system implemented to prevent players from abusing the relocation feature failed to function properly, preventing some players from relocating altogether.”

To help prevent things like this happening in the future, the team will be adding new housing plots to the Lavender Beds, the Goblet, Mist, and Shirogane and improving its server infrastructure before the release of update 4.2.

Alongside the new housing district, update 4.2 also introduced a new dungeon, new main story quests, new side quests, and more.
