During our exclusive interview with Naoki Yoshida at Gamescom 2015, the Producer and Director of Final Fantasy XIV confirmed that he is already working on the next expansion and that the first major decisions were already made.
Naoki Yoshida: “The team already fixed what world it’s going to be and what the special feature or focus will be. The first task for 4.0 is to draw the storyboard for the next opening scene. You maybe still remember the opening scene of 3.0 with the dragon. I have written the concept for this storyboard a year and a half before launch. Right now I have time for the next one and the end of the 3.x scenario is already fixed, too.”
Based on Yoshi-P’s answer, we can only assume that the next expansion is again one year and a half away.
