At least Final Fantasy 14's landlords won't threaten to evict you over lack of work due to the coronavirus. Square Enix today announced that automatic house demolition will be put on hold.
"Taking into account the world-wide spread of COVID-19 and the financial consequences of various cities going into lock-down, we have decided to temporarily suspend automatic housing demolition," a post on Final Fantasy 14's Lodestone reads. "We will monitor the situation in the coming days, and inform you all when we have come to a decision that auto-demolition can resume."
The suspension of automatic demolition actually started yesterday, on March 26, and affects all in-game worlds for Final Fantasy 14. If your estate was being prepared for demolition before then, you can stop the countdown by simply entering your estate, and the countdown timer will be stopped throughout the entire period that automatic demolition is disabled.
Automatic demolition of houses was introduced to Final Fantasy 14 back in April 2019, with patch 4.57. If you didn't enter your estate for 30 days straight, a countdown timer would be initiated, and your estate would be demolished entirely at the end of the countdown. Now this has all been put on hold with the spread of the coronavirus.
It's a really nice move on Square Enix's part. The gaming industry has been hit pretty hard over the last few months by the spread of COVID-19, with multiple gaming events being canceled, shortages of consoles like the Nintendo Switch in some regions, and warnings of shortages of physical copies for games like Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
