New Year's Wishes

Greeting, adventurers, and Happy New Year!

In 2016, the development and operations teams set the goal of providing you with meaty minor version updates that provide Vana’diel’s finest with fresh new experiences.

We’ve heard all the feedback you’ve sent to us, which was often pleased, surprised, and at times critical, and your passion for adventuring to Vana’diel has brought us much joy over the past year.
We pledge to continue to create a satisfying FINAL FANTASY XI experience in 2017 as well, and we look forward to spending even more time with you.

One of the best things about 2016 is hearing from them any people who said that they’ve decided to come back to Vana’diel after a period of absence. We’ll continue providing support for returnees going forward, and we hope to continue on this journey with you for some time to come.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the FINAL FANTASY series as a whole and the 15th Anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XI in particular. It is thanks to your passion and love for Vana’diel that we’ve been able to come this far, and it humbles us to know that we’ve brought you joy.
While we are proud that FINAL FANTASY XI has been around for half of the series’ existence, we resolve to not be complacent and to work even harder than ever to ensure that each day in Vana’diel is as enjoyable as the last.

Wishing you all the best for 2017 both in-game and out,

Akihiko Matsui
Producer, FINAL FANTASY XI
