Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was the follow-up to Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man. The game finally arrived for PC gamers on the 18th of November, after being exclusive to consoles for two years. Spider-Man Miles Morales was 7th best selling game on the day of release, which made it apparent that it would not live up to previous PlayStation PC ports.
According to the stats from SteamDB, the game has a peak concurrent of just 12,241 players. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales seems like another lukewarm PlayStation PC release. Following are the Sony PC ports which have the highest concurrent players record.
God of War – 73,529
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered – 66,436
Horizon Zero Dawn – 56,557
Days Gone – 27,450
Spider-Man: Miles Morales – 12,241
Moreover, God of War is currently leading the list. However, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered is presently the second on the highest number of concurrent players of Sony PC ports. The game did very well and was significantly ahead of Spider-Man: Miles Morales in every aspect. Spider-Man Remastered was the best-selling game on Steam before its release, and on the other hand, Miles Morales was number 7th. The earlier release had 4x Peak concurrent players compared to the recently launched Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
While both Spider-Man titles share many similarities, Miles Morales seems to have escaped the excitement from the earlier release. Furthermore, other recent Sony PC ports have not been performing well either. Sackboy: A Big Adventure, the last entry in the list of Sony PC ports, did the worst with a peak count of just 610 players.
Though Sony enjoyed releasing the games on PC, it seems they are not having the best time anymore. The company saw massive success on the platform from games like God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, but recent releases have been a bit of a letdown.
It will be interesting to see if this has any implications for future PC releases from the gaming giant. Perhaps Sony should consider what games to launch on PC and focus on better marketing for new releases.
