Lawbreakers Launches to Great Reviews, Poor Sales

GITHYP has some analysis of the launch numbers for LawBreakers, the just released first person shooter from Cliff Bleszinski and Boss Key Productions (thanks PCGamesN). Unfortunately these don't look good, as they note a significant drop off in players from the beta period, and say the game topped out at about 3000 concurrent players. This makes for unfavorable comparisons with the launch of Battleborn, which had a much bigger launch, and is still considered a flop. Here's word:

Now, LawBreakers has officially launched on Steam, and despite very positive reviews, the player counts are lower than ever. 60% lower than the beta to be exact with the gameís launch night topping out at 3k concurrent players.

We had originally compared the low player counts to one of last yearís biggest class-based shooter flops, Battleborn. Sadly, that comparison might now be a bit generous considering that Battleborn launched with a peak of 12k players which ranked it as high as #19 on Steamís most played list.

The beta for LawBreakers hit #73 on Steam at its best, but since the official launch, the playerbase has been struggling to crack Steamís top 100. With only a peak of 2.7k players on Tuesday and daily lows already close to dropping below 1k concurrent players, itís unlikely that LawBreakers will be able to do much better in its current state.

Could it be CLiffy B and that PC gamers have a longer memory then their console counterparts? Go back to consoles CLiffy

Could it be its yet another hero shooter in a "me too" genre?

Could it be that most competitive shooter gamers have that itch scratched by CSGO and (sigh) Overwatch?
