Hello, everyone. This is FFXIV Producer and Director, Naoki
During a recent Letter from the Producer LIVE, I mentioned our new companion app would be released around the end of July or the beginning of August. Unfortunately, we've had to push back this date, and I wish to apologize, as well as explain the reason for the delay.
Testing and debugging of the app itself is complete, and we submitted it to distributors at the end of July. As you might imagine, FFXIV Companion contains features not typically found in a mobile app, some of which require registration and installation of the game. The implementation of these features has necessitated several exchanges with the distributors, which has delayed the processing of our submission by several days.
Furthermore, upon closer inspection of the app's featuresâ”€more specifically, the chat functionâ”€while there are no problems with its functionality, there were certain aspects of the design we weren't completely satisfied with, which have since been adjusted.
Our submission should be processed within a few days, and we plan to release the app as soon we receive approval, which could even be this week.
Again, I apologize for the delay, and I ask that you bear with us a little while longer.
