With Final Fantasy XIV’s current level cap being 90 – and knowing that the game’s next expansion is creeping ever closer – some have wondered what the dev team’s plan is regarding future level cap increases. If the game continues to follow its current format, that means that 7.0’s would be 100.
As it turns out, that’s apparently what it’s going to be. At least according to a live stream in which Yoshi-P discussed the game’s future. A translation of Yoshi-P’s statement was provided by Aitaikimochi on Twitter. According to the same tweet, things may be different for later expansions.
Apparently Yoshi-P sees just adding ten levels every time after hitting 100 as being “half-assed” and noted that the team would have to think about was to do following the 7.0 update.
Yoshi-P has confirmed that the level cap for FFXIV 7.0 is indeed Level 100.
He also mentions that anything beyond, such as Level 110+, sounds kinda half-assed, so the team needs to think what they'll do after reaching Level 100... pic.twitter.com/XkfaBLpRy1

While it’s not uncommon for a lot of MMOs to just keep going, resulting in many of them having ridiculously high-level counts, the Final Fantasy franchise has a tradition of stopping just shy of 100, at level 99 usually, so it makes sense the team would maybe want to keep things in line with that.
It’s also a good way of marking the transition between the first decade and the next. Of course, we still have some time before we have to worry about any of that. In the meantime, players are currently enjoying Patch 6.3, which launched yesterday – and caused the Primal data center to have some interesting connectivity issues last night. Entire alliance raid stuck in a void...
