So I was browsing the net, and there was apparently a leak on the player count of many games.
In this chart, Evolve Stage 2 had 4,826,928 unique players. That’s quite the number when you think about it. Obviously, not everybody played at the same time but it’s a number to think about when looking at the grand scheme of things. I remember watching some documentary/vlog on a release of Evolve and for a split second, we could see in the distance a TV with a chart with a huge spike, while @Chloe was celebrating. My guess was that they reached a half a million or maybe even a million of players/sales. I wasn’t sure, but looking at it now, and knowing that after (I think a year) there was a conference call with investors of 2K and there was a number of 2 million games sold, I am impressed. Then, came Stage 2 and Steam Spy was showing a spike I think of 15k consecutive players. It may not sound like a lot, but SteamSpy was showing less than 9k playing on the release date.
@SlabOMeat any input you can share? If not, that’s cool, I’m still gonna be waiting for TRSs new AAA title. My money is on Left for Dead 3, but we won’t know until 3-4 years from now.
What do you guys think? Good, bad? What do you thing of this number?
