No Man’s Sky Has Already Lost 78% Of Its Playerbase

This is certainly no surprise due to game’s many technical issues and the probable fact that many are merely bored with the title already. Current stats show that there are less than 40,000 people playing.

آ…reactions among gamers since the launch have been very mixed and there have been a tremendous amount of technical issues reported by players on PC that have caused gamers to abandon their short trips to space. Last Friday during the No Man Sky release, player counts peaked around 212k players on Steam. Almost doubling the prior top 3 launches of 2016: XCOM 2 آ– 132k peak launch players, Dark Souls III آ– 129k players, and The Division آ– 113k players. And while No Man’s Sky has continued to stay in Steam’s top 5 most played games all week, it has been quickly hemorrhaging players with a 78% decrease from its highest peak 7 days ago of 212k players to its highest peak so far today of 47k players.
