Everquest has like 22 expansion and it is still going, not that Square would go that far.

To compare:
FF11 had 5 expansions + various "add-on scenarios".
FF14 currently has 2 expansions, with an upcoming one being released next year.

Also, previous interviews stated that they had planned up to 6.0 (at the time said interviews were conducted), and that the end of the Ascian arc would not be the end of FF14 as a whole (new threats, possibly?).

So I'd say still a fair bit. Not on the level of Everquest, though.

Hopefully as long as possible until we take on Zodiark him/itself. At which point I hope we find out that Hydaelyn is not as good as we think and without Zodiark to keep her/it in check, we now need to defeat Hydaelyn as well.

Wouldn't that outcome be decidedly predictable and thus undesirable, seeing as you're already half expecting it.

Not really. It took us about 14 years and several expansions before we took out Sargeras in World of Warcraft and even then it wasn't us players directly doing it. I'd imagine many of us figure it was going to happen eventually and was just a matter of how and when. As cliche as it sounds it's the journey, not the destination, that matters.

EverQuest recent expansions are more the size of content patches than actual expansions. Furthermore they have like one 8 boss raid per expansion, per year. One of the reasons I jumped ship years ago was because of insane content drought.

That's a good call to be honest.

Personally I think this game is gonna last for a while yet (certainly over the ps5 era)

Like every other MMO, until people stop playing.

At least one more proper expansion after Shadowbringers I'd say

Yoshida said they had a 10 year road map planned for the game. So if we go by what we have now starting from ARR.

Base game: Year 0: ARR
Expansion1: Year 2: HW
Expansion2: Year 4: SB
Expansion4: Year 6: Shadow Bringers
Expansion5: Year 8: xx
Expansion6: Year 10: xx
