Final Fantasy XIV hits 95k concurrent players on Steam

Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV MMO has hit more than 95,000 concurrent players on Steam.

As spotted by PCGamesN, the title has hit a new record of 95,150 simultaneous users – as of 19:00 GMT Sunday, December 5th – according to SteamDB. That's significantly higher than the 67,148 concurrent players that Final Fantasy XIV reached in July of this year. Even at the start of December, the title only had around 40k concurrent users at its height.

This massive spike is due to the Endwalker expansion, which is open for early access ahead of its launch tomorrow (Tuesday, December 7th)

Since its release, Final Fantasy XIV has attracted more than 24 million players. The game debuted in 2011, before being relaunched as A Realm Reborn in 2013.
