Square Enix today announced that its landmark MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV has amassed 10 million players since its revival in 2013.
Shortly following the release of the new Stormblood content expansion, Japanese games-maker Square Enix has hit a major milestone with its lucrative and popular Final Fantasy XIV MMO. The company reports that FFXIV has breached 10 million cummulative players worldwide, including free trials and paid subscriptions.
Interestingly enough, Square Enix notes that Stormblood significantly contributed to the company's first quarter earnings. In just ten days of availability, Stormblood helped the MMO segment amass 9.3 billion yen ($84.304 million) in net sales revenue, representing a mighty 67% year-over-year. Square Enix says net sales were raised from both Stormblood digital and physical purchases, as well as a surge in active paid subscriptions.
As Final Fantasy XIV continues engaging millions upon millions of fans across the globe, Square Enix will continue raking in revenue across the board, especially now that it's introduced in-game micro-monetizations.
