Final Fantasy XIV boasts 2 million registered accounts

Some people have been playing Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. 2 million of them, according to Square Enix, and it's, no surprise when you read our A Realm Reborn review.

This isn’t 2 million active players, instead counting every registered account worldwide. That’s still 2 million copies sold, however, since Square Enix’s MMO is one of the few subscription based MMOs left.

While I thought it was a staggeringly boring MMO made me want to hit a moogle, Nick had nicer things to say about it in his review last year. "The completionist in me is nearly overwhelmed with the sheer amount of things to do in A Realm Reborn. Square Enix really do deserve praise for not only fixing the issues of the original game, but far exceeding their goal."

Sales of the game have certainly been a boon for Square Enix after some financial woes. The publisher released its March to December financial results a few months ago revealing an upswing in net income, a shift Square Enix attributes mainly to Final Fantasy XIV.

Few sub based mmos left?

Warcraft

Wildstar

FFXIV

FFXI

ESO

EVE

I'd even argue starwars, Tera, and RIFT count as they still offer a subscription for premium users.

WildStar is in beta, so that makes five. So yes, few.
