TGS 2013: Final Fantasy XIV Has Over a Million Players: Info and Relevant Screencaps from the Live Letter

During the first Letter from the Producer Live held at Tokyo Game Show, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Naoki Yoshida Gave some interesting information about the state of the game and its future.

First of all, Players will be able to transfer their characters to a world of their choice from early October, for a limited time only. Secondly crossover contents with Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy XI are coming at the end of the year (you can check them out in the gallery)

Version 2.1 will include the following content: Good King Moogle Battle, Extreme Titan, Garuda and Efreet, one new dungeon (Pharos Sirius) and two hard mode dungeons with different mechanics for the bosses, player housing for all three city states, the Wolves’ Den PVP Arena,treasure hunting, hard modes against special bosses, beastmen daily quests and content finder random matching.

Some hard data has been given about the game’s population as well. The game has 1,080,000 total unique logins (IE: unique players) since its release, 617,000 daily unique logins, and 344,000 peak concurrent users (IE: users connected at the same time). This is pretty impressive considering that sales of the game have been suspended for two weeks in order to solve the congestion of the servers. We’ll have to see if they’ll increase further now that sales are open again.

Below you can see all the relevant screencaps from the livestream, that also show the distribution between jobs, roles, races and genders of the characters created so far.
