God of War hits 70,000 concurrent players
Sony Santa Monica's much-lauded God of War is finally available on PC – the first time the long-running series appears outside a PlayStation platform – and over 70,000 players were hacking and slashing their way across Midgard.
The peak number of players was on Sunday, January 16th, with 70,129 concurrent players. The player count topped off at just above 49,400 on launch day before steadily growing over the course of the weekend.
- God of War is the 4th game in the main series
- Launched for PlayStation 4 in 2018
- God of War Ragnarök is due later in 2022
- No guarantee Ragnarök will also come to PC
Second chance: Sony started introducing its PlayStation first-party games to PC with Horizon Zero Dawn, which reached 56,557 concurrent players on August 7th, 2020. Days Gone launched on May 18th, 2021, and reached its peak concurrent player count of 27,450 on May 23rd.
More to come: God of War was one of the biggest games of 2018, so it's hardly surprising that it has outperformed both Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone. Sony will launch Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection on Steam later this year.
