Final Fantasy XIV Updates: Live Orchestra Music Boxes, Instagram and Subscribers at a “Record High”

According to a news post released by DualShockers, President of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, revealed that the paying subscriber base for Final Fantasy XIV reached a “Record High” since the release of Stormblood on June 20th. Last week, we learned that Final Fantasy XIV had reached 10 million players, however that counted all registered users, including free trial accounts. Here Yosuke Matsuda is talking specifically about active paying subscribers, and the company expects Stormblood to make a “sustained contribution” to earnings moving forward.

The article goes on to mention that the MMO sub-segment of the business saw the biggest outperformance of the company’s expectations, with sales growing by several billion yen. This was due to them being overly conservative in estimating the boost Stormblood would provide.

Needless to say, Final Fantasy XIV is doing very well!

On the social media side of things, Final Fantasy XIV’s Official Instagram had some updates, including Naoki Yoshida giving a thumbs up to the community upon reaching 10 million players.

We also got a sneak peek at some upcoming merchandise!

First up are some adorable metal charms based off the minions in FFXIV, and are scheduled to debut at Tokyo Game Show this year.

Next are a pair of music boxes. According to the Instagram post, one of them plays “Torn from the Heavens” and the other “Night in the Brume.” Both will be available for purchase at the Live Orchestra Concert at Tokyo International on September 23rd and 24th, 2017.

And finally, the Eorzea Cafe recently had their Third Anniversary! To celebrate, the cafe will be having special menu items based off Wondrous Tails. And for a limited time, a cafe in Yokohama has opened with a Limsa Lominsa menu and theme specifically designed for that cafe.
