So, in the last few weeks, there has been an influx of new players in Final Fantasy 14, and this has led to Square Enix reducing the number of digital codes available on the official website. And in recent weeks, FFXIV’s popularity has been skyrocketing as streamers flock to the MMO and players begin their adventures leading up to the Endwalker expansion this fall. In doing so, he raised the MMO to a new height of popularity among gamers, to the point that Redditors pointed out that even Square Enix saw that its digital stock of the game had run out.
Digital copies don’t have to run out – this is one of the nice advantages of the digital era of games we are in, however, players noticed in the Square Enix store that there is a waiting list for the digital version of the MMO on PC and the PlayStation 4 version for the full edition . However, it looks like you can still buy an MMO on Steam. One of the reasons for this restriction may be slowing down the shuffling of accounts into game worlds. Redditors pointed out that there is no room for new sprouts on North American servers.
FFXIV servers are filled with the help of the Reddit user Polydopamine. As of this morning, the official Square Enix store still has the full edition on the waiting list, which means that if you want to potentially connect to Steam, this is the right way, although the population on each server may prevent you from creating your new sprout right away.
Final Fantasy 14 is experiencing this wave of popularity partly due to the fact that famous World of Warcraft players left the latter for the former, including Asmongold, one of the most popular Warcraft streamers on Twitch. Recently, his stream attracted hundreds of thousands of viewers, although he really had to fight through the stream of people who shot at him during his debut stream. It will be interesting to see if Square Enix can continue to ride this wave of popularity, as well as how long it will last. As Final Fantasy 14 prepares for the Endwalker expansion, which will be released this November, the new sprouts will have plenty of time to jump in and learn the basics of the popular MMO ahead of the new storyline.
