Battlegrounds losing players?!
Has the hype cooled or have competitors started to gain grounds?
The incredible growth of the Battlegrounds game has for the first time shown signs of slowing down. Over the past 30 days, the game has dropped closer to five percent in the column of simultaneous players, 1.508 million players against 1.584 million in January. It is still the absolute biggest game on Steam with its 1,29 million players online now against Dota 2’s silver spot at 395,000.
It is obviously too early to order a gravestone, but this is still a sign that the Battlegrounds hype has cooled slightly. A contributing factor is, of course, that Bluehole closed off 1 million cheating players in January, someone clearly visible in Steamspy’s statistics.
