Final Fantasy XIV’s auto-demolition housing feature returning with 6.3 update
Square Enix has announced that the automatic demolition of housing estates will resume with the release of update 6.3 in January.
The feature, which automatically demolishes a player’s house if they are inactive for a set period of time, was originally turned off following the release of the Endwalker expansion due to long queue times and server congestion. Square Enix then announced in March of this year that the feature would remain offline due to the “current world situation.”
Players who have entered their house at least once during the time the feature was suspended will begin the countdown to demolition fresh with the release of the update. While those who have not entered their house will see their demolition timer resume from the time that was remaining when the suspension occurred.
Players who have not entered their house for at least 30 days can see the remaining time until demolition in the Timers window. An email is also sent out as a warning.
Final Fantasy XIV is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
