The site specialized in player statistics, GitHyp, released players stats for the Ubisoft latest online game For Honor, which only in three months after its launch becomes a new record of abandonment of players for the brand, reaching 95%. No one is playing it.
For Honor has lost 95% of its users on Steam within three months of launch
The game of duels between different types of historical soldiers was launched complicated by several technical problems, which resulted in an abandonment of almost half of the players of Steam during the first two weeks, and although it had a beginning much more modest than that of The Division, followed the same trend.
One of the first symptoms of the debacle was the difference of 36% between the beta and the final release. At the start, For Honor reached a maximum of 45 thousand players present, which contrasted with the 71 thousand that participated during the testing phase.
It should be remembered that, given Ubisoft’s lack of support and the serious errors that the game presented at its launch, a group of fans had threatened to boycott the multiplayer online with a 24-hour stoppage, until the company began to respond.
The number of players last Saturday marks the sad reality of the title. A total of 3,400 players at their maximum peak of Steam and an average of 2,700 players per hour compared to 56 thousand in February, augurs a very bad future. Maybe we are facing the birth of another free-to-play candidate, just like Battleborn.
