That’s a whole lot of cats rolled, urns broken, and pockets picked.
Elder Scrolls Online has pushed past 13.5 million accumulated players since its launch (not including trial users), USGamer is reporting this week. To give you an idea of the growth, in June 2016 the title was at seven million; in February 2017, 8.5 million; in October 2017, 10 million; and in June 2018, 11 million. This means that 2.5 million new players have streamed into the game over the past year.
It should be noted that this is, of course, not the active player count but rather the total number of gamers who have purchased and registered a copy of the game since launch. ESO’s recent release of its Elsweyr expansion no doubt helped to push the count over the 13.5 million line.
