LawBreakers got a fair amount of attention leading up to its release, and it even reviewed generally well. But one of the more unfortunate attention-grabbers after the game launched was its concerning player numbers. They started well under those of Battleborn, the infamous tragic competitor to Overwatch. While director Cliff Blezinski has stated support for LawBreakers is a marathon effort, the game reached a new low that could suggest bad times ahead.
Steam trackers noticed that, earlier this week, LawBreakers was at a shockingly low 48 total players concurrent on Steam. Its 24-hour peak number was only 266. This is less than a month after LawBreakers has launched, and a tragic drop of even its low launch numbers, which were still in the thousands.
Taking a look at the game on SteamCharts as I write this, LawBreakers currently has roughly 200 players, with a 24-hour peak of 260. So that sub-50 number is likely not representative of regular playing time for LawBreakers fans, but a couple hundred likely isn’t enough to sustain a game’s continued support and development.
