Three months after launch, For Honor’s player count is starting to dwindle. According to data site, GitHyp, the number of concurrent players on Steam has dropped from 45,000 at launch down to 3,400 – a pretty significant fall to say the least.
However, with Ubisoft having launched its first round of DLC, the publisher is no doubt hoping numbers will steadily rise again. Although damning, GitHyp’s data doesn’t factor in either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions of the game.
For Honor is one of our highest-rated games of the year and rightly so. Despite its campaign being little more than fleshed out tutorial, the combat system is immensely satisfying, combining both fighting and action game genres.
The biggest issue it’s been facing is technical difficulties. Ubisoft’s unconventional approach to server infrastructure has continued to plague fans with disconnects and dodgy connections.
With so many great new games landing on a near-weekly basis, it’s no surprise that some players have began to peel away from For Honor. However, with more free content and support planned, it could just as easily pick up again during the quieter months, perhaps even replicating the publisher’s success with Rainbow Six Siege.
