Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Piles On 920,000 Beta Registrations

June 25, 2013

The third phase of the beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has been going on for two weeks already, featuring lalafell marching events and overall good performance, and apparently it’s time to talk numbers.

Today Square Enix had a stock holders’ meeting, and during the investor relations conference held as part of the meeting Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that 920,000 gamers registered for the beta.

To be more precise, as specified in the announcement in Japanese language, the number includes only entries to the beta application website, which means that the players that were just grandfathered in from the previous version of the game aren’t counted.

Think what you will of Square Enix’s almost unique attempt to completely reboot a failed MMORPG, but the numbers show that the interest generated by the revival of Final Fantasy XIV is definitely solid. Considering that the beta is still ongoing and registrations are still open while word-of-mouth seems to be generally positive, the total may even grow further.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
