Square breaks even on FFXI

The company will reach a key number of subscribers within the next week.


According to a Bloomberg report, Square has stated that Final Fantasy XI has secured approximately 190,000 subscribers, which should increase to 200,000 by the end of the week. These subscription numbers are especially important for Square, since it means that the company will break even on the $16 million investment made to develop Final Fantasy XI and the infrastructure used to support the game.

Final Fantasy XI is currently available for both the PlayStation 2 and PC in Japan. An official North American release is scheduled for sometime in 2003.
