Here is a summary of the recently concluded Live Letter 76, which includes the first available news for Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) Patch 6.4.

This is a summary of the Live Letter that was held back on March 31, 2023. It covered the first half of the Patch 6.4 updates coming to the game this month. With Live Letter 77 coming in a few days, players can take the time to read up on everything that was announced during Live Letter 76 to prepare for the coming one. Without further ado, let’s jump straight into the summary.

FFXIV Live Letter 76 Patch 6.4 Summary

The live letter, which was hosted by Naoki Yoshida, Toshio Murouchi, and Yosuke Matsuda, started with an announcement regarding a change in management. Matsuda, who was the president of Square Enix, will be stepping down in June. He will be replaced by Takashi Kiryu, who also appeared in the live stream.
