Numberswise, Final Fantasy XIV Is Finally An Improvement Over Final Fantasy XI

The nice turnaround of Final Fantasy XIV’s A Realm Reborn has finally hit Square’s numbers and improved their standing as a company dollarswise, plus XIV is now bigger than XI at its peak.  🙂

Always good news to hear, though Blizzard has stolen their thunder regarding player housing in patch 2.1 with this week’s Warlords Of Draenor announcements.  Ultimately, the future of this game and perhaps Square Enix’s role in the MMO world depends largely on whether or not they let this success get to their head too much.  Final Fantasy XIV has numerous issues that need to be fixed – and quickly at that, though I will probably switch to a one-character-only account at some point if they don’t get on the ball with these needed changes to the game.
