Sackboy: A Big Adventure was launched on 27th October on the PC platform, and it has been doing worst in terms of player count. According to the data from SteamDB, the game has a peak concurrent of just 610 players since the time of release.
Furthermore, last week Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection set the record for the lowest player count of any sony game at the launch, which was 10,851. Sackboy’s A Big Adventure has beaten it with a clear margin.
Moreover, the game was released just one day before Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, which set the concurrent record of 263,174, which could also be one of the reasons for the game being a failure on the PC. Following are the Sony PC ports which have recorded the highest concurrent players:
God of War – 73,529
Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered – 66,436
Horizon Zero Dawn – 56,557
Days Gone – 27,450
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection – 10,851
Sackboy: A Big Adventure – 610
One another reason for the game to be a failure on pc is the lack of marketing from Sony. Though the screenshots of the game coming to pc were leaked before the release, Sony didn’t announce it.
Though Sony had great success with their games launched on PC, from God of War to Days Gone, Sony managed to sell quite a decent number of copies. However, after the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, it seems like Sony will get the idea that not every game will be successful on pc.
