Newsbrief: The Final Fantasy XIV reboot couldn't have gone any better for Square Enix, as the publisher announced today that more than 2 million people have registered an account for the game.

The Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn MMO has helped Square Enix to remarkable earnings since it relaunched last August on PlayStation 3 and PC. With the latest launch on PlayStation 4 earlier this week, Square Enix says that registered users have now topped the 2 million mark.

That means the game has added half a million registered users in the last six months.

Notably, this doesn't necessarily mean that the game has 2 million monthly subscribers, nor does it mean that all those users are active -- however, the game does have an upfront cost of $39.99 on PS4, and $29.99 on PS3 and PC.

I have never really dedicated any time to playing MMO's before, but I like the Final Fantasy series and feel a sudden interest in checking out A Realm Reborn. The subscription fees are the only thing standing in my way right now, as I'm not even sure if I will like the game at all. Mechanically I guess the closest thing I have played to FF XIV would be Xenoblade Chronicles.
