Hello everyone !
Here FINAL FANTASY XIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida,
I would like to sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by the bug where Heavensward was not accessible under certain circumstances when installing the physical PlayStation®4 version of FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward.
A special launcher update for the PlayStation®4 version has been put in place to remedy this and we can now confirm that the Heavensward installation will run smoothly for those of you who own the expansion. I apologize for the time it took to identify the source of the problem and resolve it.
The system for adding content from disc on the PlayStation 4 is very complex compared to other platforms and we were unable to detect the issue under these particular circumstances. In order to ensure that everyone can play earlier than expected, we adopted a method where the data would be downloaded in advance and then installed via disk. It doesn't matter whether you purchased the physical version of the game or not, the download took place and this is what created the problem.
We have identified the problem and are working with SCE at this time to make further adjustments. As soon as we have made further progress I will send another message.
In order to compensate those affected by this issue, we are planning to send them an in-game item or offer compensation in some way. We will keep you posted as soon as the details are finalized.
Additionally, if you encounter any other concerns related to this, please report them in this topic or contact the Support Center. We will continue to work on all issues.
Once again, I am sorry for the inconvenience caused by this bug and thank you for your continued support of FINAL FANTASY XIV.
