Babylon’s Fall has suffered a massive number of issues just months into its launch with the global player count falling to just 8 people last Wednesday, 13th of April, on PC.
PlatinumGames’ newest release has had a pretty dismal time of things and it is even worse when you look at SteamCharts which rather accurately tracks the performance of titles on Steam in terms of player count.
SteamCharts noted that Babylon’s Fall’s global player base on PC for Wednesday fell to just 8 people. The all-time peak for the title currently sits 1 166 people and the highest 24-hour peak to date has been just 123 people concurrently.
In the past 48 hours alone the highest peak came in at around 124 people with the lowest at just 30 concurrent players globally. The past month has only seen an average player count of just 137 people which was a massive drop from the month before which saw an average player count of just 270 people roughly.
Babylon’s Fall launched to plenty of critique from reviewers and fans but despite the criticisms, low scores, and dismal player count, Square Enix and Platinum Games do not plan to slow down on bringing new content to the game. Recently, the publisher even pushed a survey to fans asking them what they would do to improve the game but there is no word on whether those changes were implemented.
Square Enix has also confirmed that content for Season 2 of Babylon’s Fall is “practically complete” and work on Season 3 has already started.
“No, there are no plans to reduce the scale of development on Babylon’s Fall. Content up to the end of Season 2 is now practically complete and we have started to work on Season 3 and beyond.
We will continue to provide new content for the game and make improvements based on player feedback, striving to keep existing players playing and to attract newcomers. We would like to thank all Sentinals already enjoying the world of Babylon’s Fall, as we look forward to welcoming more of you in the future!”
