It may not be in the top 10 of the most-populated games on Steam right now, but Absolver is doing extremely well for itself following its release earlier this week.
Devolver Digital, the game’s publisher, said that the multiplayer fighter has become the company’s “biggest launch ever.” While no sales figures have been given, the publisher said that it was seeing more than 30,000 players enjoying the game concurrently on Steam and PlayStation 4 (presumably, this doesn’t include those coming from GOG.com, the other online retailer handling the game). Steam Charts show a peak of 18,921 players on launch day, a number that has settled down to around 10,000 on average.
“Devolver is super proud and honored to be working with Sloclap on their ambitious first game, Absolver, which has been our biggest game launch ever, both in terms of revenue and concurrent users, and the size of our egos,” said a spokesperson for Devolver Digital.
The devs are currently focused on creating fixes for server issues, lag, and corrupted save games that plague some players’ experiences. An Xbox One release is said to be slated for later this year.
