    Even before the release of the game officially with the re-launch of FFXIV, Yoshida confirmed plans for patches and plans that would extend out to about a year from the release date. He made it clear new content would be coming soon and patch 2.1 would bring it. However, server congestion and higher traffic than plan delayed all of that as he explained today. One of the concerns voiced on the forums was the lack of new content, promised for patch 2.1 and the long time between the launch and eventual release of 2.1. He explained 2.1 was originally planned a release in late November, but the work needed to improve the servers and player experience from the launch lost them a month of work. So the patch is now coming out in December.

    Because of the delay, many asked why the content was not broken up and given out in small bits at a quicker pace. Yoshida explained how things work from the development side of the game and why it was not possible to do what they asked about.
