Final Fantasy XIV is Square-Enix's hit MMORPG game, combining the Final Fantasy series with the popular MMO genre that was popularized by games such as World of Warcraft.
Released first in 2010, FF14 is now available on PC and PS4.
With PS4 owners slowly moving over to the next-gen system, it has been revealed that the game will be joining them.
FF14 Open Beta On PS5
Square-Enix has revealed that an open beta for Final Fantasy XIV will be launching on April 13th for PS5.
This beta will be available to all current FF14 players on PS4.
The full game will be released after the beta ends and is free to PS4 owners who are looking to upgrade to the next-gen version.
FF14 on PS5 will come with all of the current expansions, offering the full experience to new players looking to jump in.
There will also be a trial for new players to try the game out for the first time.
The PS5 version of Final Fantasy XIV will feature improved frame-rates and faster load times, as well as resolutions up to 4K.
The next Final Fantasy XIV expansion, Endwalker, will be released in Autumn 2021.
Endwalker will conclude the Hydaelyn and Zordiark story which has been a large part of the game since A Realm Reborn in 2013.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake
In April 2020 we finally got the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a game that was first teased back in 2005.
The game released exclusively on PS4, but it is believed that it is a timed exclusive, meaning that from 2020 it could be released on other platforms, such as Xbox One, Series X|S, and PC.
It is possible we could see the game release on Nintendo Switch via cloud game, but it is unlikely.
As of right now, there has been no announcement of the game coming to other platforms, but we will likely hear more news after April 2021.
