Though it entered early access several days earlier, Gunfire Games’ Remnant 2 became available to all players on July 25th. After ranking highly in the Steam Top Sellers charts, it was expected to perform better than its predecessor on the platform. Thanks to SteamDB, it’s confirmed that the peak concurrent player count hit 110,856 just 20 hours ago.
By comparison, Remnant: From the Ashes reached 48,289 peak concurrent players about four years ago. The reason for the jump is obvious, as the first game was relatively unknown when it launched in August 2019. Word of mouth spread, however, and it sold over three million units by December 2021. Of course, the sequel having more marketing didn’t hurt either.
Remnant 2 is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC – check out our review here. Gunfire Games is working on fixes and performance improvements and is also looking into adjusting respec costs while providing more resources from chests. Stay tuned for further updates in the meantime.
