Final Fantasy XIV passes 2 million registered users By Erren Van Duine on April 15, 2014 at 11:09 PM

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has surpassed 2 million registered accounts globally, Square Enix has announced today. With the launch of the PS4 version this week, along with players on both PC and PS3, FFXIV marks one of the biggest cross-platform MMOs to date. Previously it was revealed the game retains on average 500,000 daily users as well.

This news comes hot off the heels of Patch 2.2 as well, which offered new content for players – with more expected on a regular basis. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn for the PlayStation 4 is available for $39.99 and $29.99 for PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. A free 30-day trial is included when registering the game on a new platform, with monthly subscriptions starting at $12.99.

  • It’s actually worth pointing out that this is “accounts registered”, *not* “subscribers”. The two aren’t quite the same thing – a registered account isn’t necessarily paying for the game.

    It does, however, mean that two million discreet copies/account keys have been sold. The game is selling very, very well.

    Congratz SE. I wish you will succed much more than this in the future.

    Great news. I recently got back into the game after not playing much for a couple of months. So much fun. It’s great to read that the game is staying popular and crowded!

    With 500k daily users that means that the floor of subscription retention is 25%, but is probably quite a bit higher as there’s likely a good number of players that don’t log in every day.

    Even at worst case, they’re doing way better than I thought they would; I knew after the reboot FFXIV would have its fans but I wasn’t expecting this wide of an appeal and success.

  • Ryuukishi

    I don’t think anyone was expecting this level of success, as was made clear when the servers were obliterated in the first week or two when way too many people wanted to play. 🙂 Yoshi-P must feel very overwhelmed.

    I’m so happy to hear this! It’s a fantastic game, they did an incredible job and they deserve this success!

    This is good news, and I am so happy for Yoshi-P and his team. I myself have been unable to play the game further because my processor is just a little too slow to comfortably play anything late-game or high-stakes, but I watch my roommate play it regularly (right now, in fact), and it just looks so fun.

    Also, hello again everyone. After a battle with offline unemployment, exploding computer screens, burnt-out PS3s, and general chaos I am finally able to make a comfortable return to Nova Crystallis. I would like to apologize to everyone who was waiting for my Lighting Returns review- I have decided to postpone it as part of my Final Fantasy Full Playthrough set of articles, as we already have an official review on the site. On that score, when things have become a little more stable for me (hoping within the month), the 3FP will be launching again starting with Final Fantasy VII. I will be going back and adding a score for the first 6 games in accordance with the Nova Crystallis review scale.
