At the recent Final Fantasy 14 Aria no End expansion preview event, game director Naoki Yoshida revealed that Final Fantasy 14 has more than 24 million players worldwide, and it is also the most profitable in the series.
In an interview with the media, Yoshida said that since the release of Final Fantasy XIV 11 years ago, the number of players has reached 24 million. It is worth mentioning that in 2015, there were only 4 million registered players in Final Fantasy 14. By the time of the third expansion, Stormblood (2017), the number of registered players reached 10 million, which doubled four years later.
Everyone knows how difficult it was for us when Final Fantasy 14 was released. Since then, we have turned it into a game that contributes a lot of profits to our company. Maybe I shouldn’t say that, but from the business From a perspective, we have achieved great success. Next, we will spare no effort to invest money to ensure that this game continues to be a game that players can enjoy.
