Final Fantasy 14 is one of the names that has become popular again recently. The game’s release actually dates back to 2010, but its arrival on Steam was on February 18, 2014, about 7.5 years ago. This ageless game broke its own record this weekend with 47542 simultaneous players.
The previous record of the game was realized with the sudden increase in the number of players with Shadowbringers in 2019, and it seemed that 41200 players played the game simultaneously at that time.
So what do you think we owe this record to this time? After all, there is no expansion pack released. The trigger for this record is that Asmongold, one of the most popular World of Warcraft publishers in the world, decided to give Final Fantasy 14 a chance.
While more than 200,000 people went to watch Asmongold play Final Fantasy 14, many players entered the game to see Asmongold. In other words, we can see how a single publisher affects the popularity of a game.
