FFXIV is a titan in the MMO space, earning accolades regularly. That’s a trend that didn’t stop at The Game Awards 2022 show. This year, FFXIV saw nominations for Best Community Support and Ongoing Game, the same categories it won in last year. While the competition was stiff thanks to games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, Square Enix pulled a win out for the second year in a row for both categories.

First, The Game Awards showcased Best Community Support. While FFXIV had no expansion this year, they’ve continued to see support thanks to regular updates. Though other titles like Apex Legends and Destiny 2 have committed fanbases, they faltered in 2022. Final Fantasy XIV, on the other hand, stayed in its fans good graces. Fan reception for this title is overwhelming, and FFXIV took the trophy early in the show. You can see the announcement from The Game Awards below.
Later on in the event, Square Enix went up against the same foes for Best Ongoing Game. Here, the game with the most impressive strand on ongoing content won. Thanks to regular updates with story content, adjustments, events, and more, FFXIV swept this category as well. Few games update their service with such high-quality content on a regular basis, but Square’s MMOs is an anomaly. The Game Awards posted a special congrats to the team at Square on Twitter after the announcement.
The social media team took to the official FFXIV Twitter Page to thank players for both the Best Community Support and Best Ongoing Game awards in separate posts.
