Final Fantasy 14 continues to be a massive hit for Square Enix as it was revealed that the game now has over 27 million players globally.
Specifically, producer Naoki Yoshida (aka Yoshi-P) revealed in a recent livestream that the game has now reached over 27 million registered players (via @DomsPlaying on Twitter). For comparison, it was shared that last year, the game had 24 million registered players.
An increase of 3 million players in a year is quite big, especially considering that Final Fantasy 14 is not a new game. While it did get a big expansion last December 2021, it’s still an impressive feat for a long-running MMO to get a significant boost in player count.
Final Fantasy XIV now has more than 27M registered players globally, according to Producer/Director Naoki Yoshida.
Compare this to 24M a year ago.
