Time for a quick-and-dirty roundup of some industry news that appeals to the numerologists among our reading audience!

We’ll start with a look at Steam, which is seeing a rather unprecedented drop in active users this year. The count has gone down from an average daily high of 18.5 million players in January to just 15 million per day this past week. Suspects in this dastardly crime caper are the popular¬†PUBG and Fortnite.

Perhaps some of those users are lost in Sea of Thieves? The pirate simulator is crowing over the fact that it just crossed five million players total since the game’s launch this past spring.

Another possibility is that the new MapleStory M has them in its clutches. The mobile version of the hit Asian MMO racked up an amazing three million players in its first week of operation.
