I can see the article titles now

“Videogamer journalists think that…”

People are always deflecting now, if the game had better content it wouldn't have lost this many players. Sure most games have a decrease after launch but not over 90%. This game was overhyped; levels take too long, bad customization, generic bug enemies. The robots are good but otherwise it's pretty bland.

It's a simple wave mode with no depth or variety, this type of gameplay used to be dlc or an extra mode. Not sure why it was ever as popular as it was, maybe there weren't really other games out.

@TheProfessional

It's clear from your comment history why you are trying to bring the game down, it's obvious you haven't played it yet based on how your comments sound.

Trust me, this is the type of game the Xbox fanbase would love. Stop letting platform loyalty keep you from playing one the best co op shooters in recent memory.

@ hypertension
How do you explain the large drop in player count?

Wtf are you talking about overhyped. Game launch with little to no fan fare. It exploded because it us fun. I'm not a MP gamer and I had a great time with it. Played it non stop for a couple months. I personally do not spend more than a couple months on any game

Still lost 97% of its player base. Sony gamers don't support their games. That's why concord had to go open beta.

Lying through your teeth. I’m very familiar with a certain fanbase that factually don’t support their exclusives, and now they are going multiplat :( what stage of grief is projection?

JackBNimble1h ago(Edited 1h ago)

That 97% is steam player's not including ps5 according to the article.

But all this happened after Sony forced pc players to make a sony account to play. Even Sony back tracking on that won't fix this.

So... no gamer supports their games since all games see drastic drop offs like this after release? The gymnastics to make something that is normal look like it's only a bad sign for Sony. There are very few exceptions, and we all know who they are, where this doesn't happen. But this is pretty standard for all games, including GaaS, where fluctuations in gameplay across a month is what sustains it and not constant high levels of players.

It has sold more than 12 million copies on about 4 1/2 months. Go ahead and tell me the last xbox exclusive thst has sold like that....

All they have to do for me to play again is fix PC performance. It went from running decent at launch to like 30-40 fps now.

I'll bite...palworld also sucks because it went from 2,100,000 players max peak to "just" 85,000 24hour peak...that's only 4% of what it once was!!! Oh no!!

The real answer is these games will fluctuate on when they get patched and updated. Live service.

InUrFoxHole1h ago

Don't worry my guy it'll get a boost when it hits gamepass

GAAS and Early Access = Flash in the pan / flavor of the month.

Isn't that SP games as well typically?
