Redfall was released on May 2 and is the latest title from the developer Arkane Studios, but it suffered a lot of technical problems and bad reviews, Although the majority of the developer’s games have previously been critically acclaimed, It debuted as one of Steam’s lowest rated games of all time.
Poor ratings seem to be a reason for the game’s poor sales, but it’s possible that it was released the same day on Xbox Game Pass. Redfall has dropped to a shocking number of players, given that the game is only two weeks old, and one of Redfall’s developers expressed a mixture of sadness and confusion over the response to the game.
Player numbers on Redfall’s launch day spelled bad news, according to data SteamDB Redfall had 376 active players on May 16th. The same source reveals that the number of active players in the game on Steam dropped below 1,000 on May 8 and continues to drop steadily. Looking at its first 15 days on the market, Redfall is currently on its way to down from 200 players per day by the end of the month.
The Steam digital platform is one of Microsoft’s smallest gaming platform in terms of popularity, but this recently emerged data still paints a picture of players’ reaction to a “huge” AAA game that focuses heavily on the cooperative phase. While developer Arkane previously said that it has ambitious plans for content for the game post-launch, it is expected that the developer’s determination to support the game will influence its continued plunging popularity.
