Final Fantasy XIV boasts 5 million registered accounts
Let’s start this news item with an important caveat – we don’t know how many actual active subscribers Final Fantasy XIV
has at the moment. What we do
know is that the game has five million registered accounts globally, excluding
free trial accounts. So while that could
mean that the game has two people actually playing and a lot of inactive accounts, it probably means something else.
This announcement comes only two months after the game’s first expansion went live and shortly before the two-year anniversary of the relaunched title. The game also recently launched in South Korea to impressive numbers at the nation’s internet cafes.
