Square Enix president Yoichi Wada has confirmed that 630k units of Final Fantasy XIV have been sold since it went on sale at the end of September.

The numbers are worldwide. Break it down and the regional figures are:

  • Europe – 230,000
  • North America – 210,000
  • Japan – 190,000

Wada confirmed in a meeting with investors that Square was “quickly working” on fixing the issues that have plagued the MMO since launch.

We’re quickly working on reforms. W’d like to put our full power into regaining trust,” he said.

If we satisfy our users, they will return. On the other hand, once the users say, ‘forget this,’ there’s no turning back. We can only recover our trust so far.”

Square also confirmed the PS3 version of FFXIV was still on for a March 2011 release.
