During this adversity, Final Fantasy 14 has suspended its automatic demolition policy that destroys your house after a period of inactivity.

“Taking under consideration the world-wide spread of the COVID-19 (also referred to as “novel coronavirus”) and, therefore, the economic effects of different cities going into lock-down, we’ve decided to suspend automatic housing demolition temporarily,” reads the announcement from Square Enix.

The update is live as of now and affects all worlds in Final Fantasy 14, so if you’re you’re struggling to access the sport for any reason, a minimum of you needn’t worry about your house. That said, if your house has already been scheduled for automatic demolition, you’ll get to log in and enter your home or build something on your land.

As for when demolitions will resume, Square says they plan on monitoring things “in the approaching days” and letting us know when things are going back to normal. And when that happens, the counter for inactivity will devour where it left off before the suspension was enacted on March 26 at 8:10 pm PT.
