Final Fantasy XIV Surpasses 10 Million Cumulative Players Worldwide


Square Enix announced today that the MMORPG title, Final Fantasy XIV, has surpassed 10 million cumulative players worldwide.


The announcement follows the release of the most recent expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, which expands in-game content with two new playable jobs, increased level cap, and more to its story along with unexplored lands. The game has since then added high-level raids, job adjustments, and a number of new features with content patches.


The 10 million players milestone coincides with the release of Patch 4.06 and the start of the annual Moonfire Faire seasonal event. The event will feature a new series of quests against Ultros and his uncontrollable tentacles as well as event items, including a dyeable Faire version of a popular set of equipment, and more.


Final Fantasy XIV is available on PlayStation 4 and PC.

I saw this report earlier. They are outright misleading people.

What exactly is 10m comulative players? 10 million accounts created.

That is not that impressive given WoW had 13million active subscribers at one point. I believe they are using that term purposely to mislead people. In truth they have about 1m subs so they have to prop it up in different ways i guess.

It's a good game, but bullshit reports don't make me want to come back.

It's why I roll my eyes whenever Steam mentions how many free accounts have been created. :/
