We have already received words before about this game, last time we brought words from the president of Nintendo. We talk about the aforementioned Palworld, a title inspired by Pokémon. The launch in early access from Palworld was a huge success, with an all-time peak of 2.1 million concurrent players on Steam, competing with popular titles like Counter-Strike 2 or DOTA 2. However, in the last two weeks, daily peaks have dropped to around 750,000 players
This pattern of initial boom followed by progressive decline is common in the video game industry. It seems that as players achieve the main objectives of the game, the task list decreases, affecting long-term interest. Although Pocketpair has plans to introduce new cLike PvP modes and new bosses, the lack of scheduled dates and the need for more staff pose challenges for the game’s future in Early Access.
The decrease in the number of players is a natural trend after a successful launch. The key for Palworld will be to maintain long-term interest, offering frequent updates and content that keeps the community engaged. The lack of exact dates for upcoming releases could impact player retention, and will be crucial for the development team address these challenges to ensure the continued success of the game.
Some players claim that this drop is alarming but expected, while others see it as something normal and hope that the game picks up. Did you like this game, if you have tried it? Do you find this Pokémon style interesting? You know, we read you in the comments!
