FFXIV Fanfest 2020 For North America Is Cancelled Due To COVID-19

After careful deliberation about it, Square Enix has decided to cancel the much awaited event.

In this Letter from the Producer, Naoki Yoshida who is the producer of Final Fantasy XIV, talked about the cancellation of the said event due to COVID-19. I quote:

The North American Fan Festival was scheduled to be held in San Diego half a year from now in November, but after much deliberation we have made the difficult decision to cancel proceedings.

Yoshida then said that even though the festival is cancelled, they are still looking at ways to hold a Fan Festival in North America and that plans are already being made for the first half of 2021.

Meanwhile, Fanfest for Europe and Japan are not cancelled and that preparations are underway. One interesting thing from this Letter is that apparently, they are looking for ways to hold a physical event but also a digital one. Probably along the lines of what Fortnite did with the Marshmello concert.

At the end of the Letter, Naoki Yoshida discussed the plans for Final Fantasy XIV’s next major update.
