Evolve’s Steam Player Base Nose Dives
Evolve has been a controversial game, even before it’s release. The heavy use of pre-launch DLC, and pre-order DLC, enraged a number of people. The large focus on online player meant the game needed a strong, consistent, player base in order to thrive.
After all the backlash from the sheer amount of DLC, some of it feeling like pay to win, it seems Evolve is nose diving, at least on steam. The player base for Evolve has been dropping, with recent figures proving to be quite alarming. In the last 30 days, the amount of people playing Evolve has been shrinking, nearly daily.
The shrinking of the player base highlights one of the main issues people have with online only games. Evolve’s PR nightmare is no longer the only negative surrounding the game. With players abandoning in increasing numbers, Evolve may just end up on Steam sales sooner rather than later.
Evolve currently sits at number 50 in Steams Top Games (as 09/03/2015)
