Is Final Fantasy XIV down? If you can’t log on to FFXIV or access your character, it might be because there is currently ongoing maintenance or server issues. Before worrying about any problems with your game, you’ll want to check the FFXIV server status and currently scheduled maintenance times below to see if the MMO is offline.

If you can’t log into FFXIV, it’s typically because of planned maintenance. The critically acclaimed MMORPG occasionally schedules downtime to implement patches, updates, and other hotfixes, or to perform maintenance on the game’s servers. Developer Square Enix usually announces these well ahead of time, so be sure to read on and see when future maintenance times are planned for.

The FFXIV server status tends to be pretty stable, but there are occasional blips, so if you’ve been unceremoniously kicked out of the game or you’re finding yourself unable to log in, it’s possible that the servers are down. You can usually check this via the FFXIV Lodestone, where Square Enix tracks the current status of each individual world.

FFXIV server maintenance

There is currently no planned maintenance for FFXIV servers. The last downtime was on June 20-21, which Square Enix said was to implement hotfixes for FFXIV patch 6.41. Here was the FFXIV server maintenance schedule for all worlds:

  • PDT: Tuesday June 20, 2023 at 9am to Wednesday June 21 at 3am
  • EDT: Wednesday June 21, 12am to 6am
  • GMT: Wednesday June 21, 4am to 10am
  • BST: Wednesday June 21, 5am to 11am
  • CEST: Wednesday June 21, 6am to 12pm
  • AEST: Wednesday June 21, 2pm to 8pm

For future scheduled maintenance, be sure to log out before the maintenance period begins, or else you might be suddenly booted from the game mid-activity. Just ahead of maintenance, you should also see notifications warning you of the impending downtime via the in-game chat window if you have system messages enabled.

The Home World Transfer Service and Data Center Travel System are both suspended 30 minutes prior to the start of the maintenance period, and they’ll remain unavailable for use until the maintenance has concluded. You’ll also be unable to use some features of the FFXIV companion app during this time.
