Redfall Lost 95% of Players on Steam; Not Doing Too Well in Game Pass Either

Redfall and its more than 95 percent drop in popularity on Steam is a real disaster. Arkane Studios has no reason to be happy, especially as the game's regression continues.

Arkane Studios can speak of a truly disastrous situation for its latest work. Redfall - released by Bethesda, a vampire FPS - has lost more than 95% of players on Steam in just 2 weeks. Also on Xbox Game Pass the situation is, to put it mildly, not the best.

Merciless numbers

The dire situation is perfectly illustrated by statistics of Steam. At most, Redfall was played by 6124 people at the same time. This is a poor result, although still far from the current numbers. Yesterday's record for Arkane's shooter was barely 351 people. What's more, the trend continues downward, as the day before the daily peak was 376 players.

Also in Game Pass the game is not doing very well. Initially, it enjoyed quite a bit of interest. Players gathered in front of monitors in such large numbers that, as a result Redfall was ranked 3rd among the most popular titles on the platform (in the first week after its release). However, it only took another 7 days for the situation to change dramatically. Indeed, Redfall fell in the list to the 13th spot.

Criticism from players

However, the dramatic situationg has its reasons. The game has met with considerable criticism, which made Redfall be hailed the worst-rated game of Arkane Studios and Bethesda, and one of the 15 worst games on Steam in terms of user ratings.. The community complains about visual bugs, repetitive gameplay, boredom and terribly working artificial intelligence.

Comment from the developers

The American studio responsible for Redfall was silent as a grave for the first days after the release, but finally decided to speak out on the poor situation of its FPS. The developers explain external problems, pointing out, for example, the pandemic. However, they assure that many people worked on the title for years, making every effort to ensure quality. Some time ago we wrote also about the explantions of Xbox brand chief Phil Spencer, who in response to the negative reactions raised, among other things, the topic of quality control.
