Final Fantasy 14, Square Enix’s MMORPG, has reached new heights. After a short boost by Asmongold’s viewership, it seems the game has reached a new concurrent player record on Steam. Who said streamers do not influence the flow of players in a video game? Shortly after his impact, the game has gathered around 47,542 concurrent users on Steam, a new record for Square Enix.
The official stats provided by Valve’s official Steam platform has proven the power and influence of the famous streamer, Asmongold, who has recently turn the tides and started playing Final Fantasy 14. Apparently, he seems to like it and will continue to do the same, even if the FFXIV community doesn’t want toxicity in the game.
On the financial and marketing side, it seems that Blizzard cannot get a hold of its player base and has recently started losing more and more players, which may have also been a reason for this surprising influx of FFXIV players. Blizzard has lost around 2 million players after the excessive number of sales achieved with the release of Shadowlands, which could also be related to content. More and more players are getting bored with the game, and it seems that MMO lovers are seeking a new home.
