Electronic Arts recently released a new set of games on Valve’s distribution service, including Dead Space 3, Titanfall 2, Sims 4 etc. Since its release on Steam, Titanfall 2 has been selling extremely well, and it has also become more popular than every Battlefield game combined.
The Steam launch of Titanfall 2 appears to be a blessing, adding thousands of new players each day. The game currently is at the top of the global best sellers list, and its current concurrent player numbers places it within the top 100 most played games on Steam.
Having a peak of more than 9,000 concurrent players, the game is proving to be more popular than Battlefield 5 and Star Wars Battlefront 2, at least on the Steam platform. Thanks to the sudden release on Steam, Respawn’s sci-fi shooter has experienced a surge in popularity.
Back in October 2016 when the game launched it had to face tough competition with EA’s own Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which kind of overshadowed the game’s interest by the community.
The general consensus among those who have played this game is that “Titanfall 2” is one of the finest shooters of recent years featuring a rich and memorable single-player campaign in a shooter, along with a fluid multiplayer experience. But the Game’s single player story campaign has also been a strong factor behind the game’s success and popularity, in my opinion.
With the release of the Game on Steam, we are seeing a large influx of new players, and as of this writing, the Game is currently the top-selling game on Steam, even beating out The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and new titles like Hardspace: Shipbreaker and Satisfactory.
Titanfall 2 came out in 2016, and Respawn learned from the mistakes of the first Titanfall, and when they released the game in 2016, Respawn did everything right to make the game more enjoyable, without frustrating players with season passes, grinding, and other similar stuff.
Currently the game is selling for 67% off, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive on STEAM.
