Final Fantasy 15 5.5 update will be released on April 13, 2021. The update is the final post-launch patch for the Shadowbringers expansion, which will bridge the gap to the next expansion. Endwalker.
Late in the Final Fantasy 14 announcement, Square Enix CEO Yusuke Matsuda appeared, unveiling the PS5 version of FF14, while “accidentally” launching the update’s 5.5 release date. It was a real flaw that was rehearsed, with game director Naoki Yoshida and translation director Michael Christopher Koji Foxx playing an upset role. Full ambiance was a very public access TV for a minute.
As for what 5.5 will actually bring to FF14, we don’t really know. The livestream focused exclusively on new details about Endwalker, but if you’ve played FF14 for a while, you probably know what to expect. Beautifully designed post-expansion updates usually add a few hours of story missions, a new dungeon, a new raid, and some fun side activities as well.
