Final Fantasy XIV is so popular it invents dematerialized out-of-stock

Square Enix’s MMORPG is so popular in the United States that it ended up temporarily out of stock, even in a dematerialized version.

Last week the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV found himself overwhelmed by his own popularity. On Reddit, several players have indeed reported massive failures of American servers, but also a shortage of the digital version of the game, to the point that it was impossible to create a new character or buy a dematerialized key. This is due to a record attendance on the servers of the star title of Square Enix, but also to a shortage of activation keys, however generated automatically by the development studio.

Always more popular

It must be said that if FFXIV: A Realm Reborn has not always been the success we know, Square Enix’s MMORPG stands out today as one of the most popular games of its generation, to the point of beat attendance records. In the last few weeks, they are almost 60,000 players who met simultaneously on Steam. A constantly growing craze, which has greatly increased with the approach of the release of Endwalker. As a reminder, this fourth expansion of the game follows Shadowbringers released in 2019, and promises to conclude the narrative arc initiated by the game at the time of its original release. Solved since, the problem is a testament to the popularity of the game across the Atlantic.

Appointment on November 23 to discover Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. In the meantime, we remind you that Square Enix’s MMORPG is still available for free up to level 60, then via a monthly subscription.
