That’s it. A month after its launch Babylon’s Fall has almost no players left. The Steam numbers are as ridiculous as they are alarming. Can the title survive such a drop in attendance?
We thought no game could do worse than Anthem and yet Babylon’s Fall is on the right track. PlatinumGames’ multiplayer struggles to hold more than 10 players on PC.
Less than 10 active players on Babylon’s Fall
The decline continues for Babylon’s Fall. Shortly after its launch on March 3, attendance at Babylon’s Fall was already in freefall. And if you thought PlatinumGames and Square Enix’s gaming service couldn’t go any lower, you were wrong. We knew he was in bad shape, but at this point it is catastrophic, even laughable. Last week alone, Babylon’s Fall only brought together … 8 simultaneous players on Steam.
A game designed for multiplayer with less than 10 assets per day a month after its release, it is no longer a shipwreck at this stage. This desertion can be explained in many ways, but the most obvious is that Babylon’s Fall is bad. Critics and feedback from players were harsh. Dated mechanics, shameful economic strategy, simultaneous release with Elden Ring. The game ticks all the boxes.
What future for the game?
With such performances, the question of the future of Babylon’s Fall is back on everyone’s lips. After the game’s failed launch, Square Enix and PlatinumGames said they didn’t want to abandon ship. The studio behind NieR and Bayonetta wanted to reassure the few fans of the game by saying that there was no question of reducing the sails of development for the moment. Especially since the content of the second season was almost ready at that time and work had already started on the third and subsequent ones.
“NoWe will continue to feed players with content and improve the game based on their feedback, trying to retain current players and attract new audiences. “, had then declared the studio. However, with barely 10 active players on PC, there won’t be much feedback to collect. It remains to be seen whether the number of followers is more glorious on PS4 and PS5 but we doubt it. We know the disastrous fate of this kind of titles which have followed a similar trajectory and there is a chance that Babylon’s Fall will suffer the same fate: abandonment.
