Square Enix peeks behind the game development curtain with the first episode of The Creation of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers.
The new six-part developer diary digs deep into the creation and development of the acclaimed MMO Final Fantasy XIV, with a focus on last year’s Shadowbringers expansion. The first episode, Telling a Tale, features interviews with producer and director Naoki Yoshida, and scenario writers Banri Oda and Natsuko Ishikawa.
Subsequent episodes focus on a different element of Shadowbringers and will include contributions from across the development team. Square Enix plans to release new episodes every Thursday.

- Episode One – February 27
- Episode Two – March 5
- Episode Three – March 12
- Episode Four – March 19
- Episode Five – March 26
