Square Enix massively popular MMO; Final Fantasy XIV is the home for over 14 million players, each on their own adventures in the land of Eorzea.
The figures have come to light during the in-game celebrations of the MMO’s fifth anniversary last month, meaning over 4 million players have joined in just the past year. Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida shared a message thanking the players who called Eorzea home;
“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.
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.”
Anniversary celebrations are currently taking place through The Rising event, which will continue until September 18. You can learn more about the event here.
