Sony has had a good run of PC releases recently, and each new game launch is incredibly popular on Steam. Unfortunately, it seems that the recent release of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves did not perform as well as other titles and currently sits as the lowest performer of the bunch.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has always been in an awkward position. While it’s great to see Uncharted 4 and its standalone expansion running on PC, Sony chose not to port the original trilogy. This move seems to have affected sales, with the collection only garnering close to 11,000 peak concurrent players at launch (via VGC), a far cry from the 73,000 players who played God of War when it launched, or the 66,000. players who logged into Spider-Man Remastered.
Previous releases like Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone also garnered significantly higher peak concurrent player counts, sitting at 56,000 and 27,000 respectively. Every other major release has been the first entry in a series, while Sony is asking PC gamers to jump into Uncharted for what is essentially the final chapter of Nathan Drake’s adventure.
Although there are fewer players jumping into Uncharted, the game has mostly positive reviews from users on Steam. Additionally, it’s worth noting that this game was originally supposed to come out much earlier in the year, but was delayed until the busy October season, with more new games just on the horizon. This also probably affected the number of players jumping at launch.
