Final Fantasy XIV Surpasses 14 Million Players

Final Fantasy XIV - Gamers Heroes
Just in time for its fifth anniversary, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV has surpassed 14 million registered players.

Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida had to say the following:

Although the original FINAL FANTASY XIV failed to meet expectations, through the support of people in the media, the companies we have worked with, and of course our dedicated players, we were able to launch A Realm Reborn in 2013. FFXIV was indeed reborn, and over the course of these past five years, it has grown to become the title that we all know and love today. I cannot thank you enough.

We in the development and operations teams have been working at full capacity ever since the launch of A Realm Reborn, and while we have made our share of missteps along the way, the Warriors of Light continue to spur us onward.

There are many new gaming experiences and epic tales that we wish to share with you all. We will be working harder than ever to expand the world of FFXIV, where players form lasting bonds with one another through their adventures.

FINAL FANTASY XIV is the result of everyone’s passion and commitment, including all of you Warriors of Light, and I hope you will continue to support us as we build this world together.

To mark this occasion, Yoshida will host a special 14-hour livestream full of guests reflecting on the journey so far. It will kick off on August 31 at 8:00pm PT, and will feature appearances from some of the game’s voice actors, developers discussing a variety of topics, and the final results for the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Favorite Music Poll. Fans can tune in here.
