No doubt the launch from the PlayStation 4 version earlier immediately helped A Realm Reborn to attain this figure. It is worth noting, however, that figure refers on the number of FFXIV Gil registered users the overall game has attracted. In other words, there aren't necessarily 2 million players actively paying a regular membership to play.
With a growing number of companies electing to convert their MMOs into free-to-play games, A Realm Reborn producer Naoki Yoshida defended the subscription model a few weeks ago. "A great deal of games look at the initial two months of subscription numbers, think this is not going for being a feasible business, and transition to free-to-play," he was quoted saying. "I don't even think it's necessarily because free-to-play is really a better form FF14 Gil , though. It's a little more about people generating a rash decision to transition and chase some quick money."
Final Fantasy XIV's initial launch in 2010 was disastrous, resulting from the departure of the director plus a public apology from Square Enix. CEO Yoichi Wada would later claim the sport had "greatly damaged" the Final Fantasy brand.
