After their record-breaking #2 peak on Steam charts, Palworld has plummeted quickly, resulting in over a million players dropping out, as recent data reveals. Keep reading to find out more about the rise and fall of Palworld, and whether the game will return to its short-lived former glory.
Palworld’s Player Base Dwindles After Record-Breaking #2 Peak
Palworld, the sensation that stormed into the gaming scene via Game Pass less than a month ago, has been on a wild journey of highs and lows. Breaking records and amassing a colossal player base of over seven million on Xbox, it seemed unstoppable. In a gaming world dominated by giants like Fortnite, Call of Duty, and Minecraft, Palworld briefly claimed the top two spots on charts.
However, recent data reveals a startling truth: Palworld has seen a staggering drop of around 41% in its Xbox player count over the past two weeks. Achieving a #2 peak with a concurrent player count of 2.1 million on Steam, the game’s player base has now dwindled to around 750,000.
The reasons for this decline are being debated in gaming communities. Palworld’s current state offers just ten achievements to pursue, perhaps leading some players to set it aside in anticipation of future updates. Server issues may have contributed to the player exodus, but it’s worth noting that with its multiplayer aspect, Palworld holds promise for enduring popularity compared to solely single-player titles.
With the latest Xbox patch released and promises of further updates, the future of Palworld remains uncertain yet brimming with potential. Will Palworld reclaim its former glory and soar to even greater heights? Only time will tell—but we’re hopeful.
That’s all about Palworld losing more than half of its player base after the #2 peak. If you’d like to join the player base, check out the complete list of Palworld system requirements.
