Dragon Ball FighterZ's Player Base is Dying Fast

Dragon Ball FighterZ's Player Base is Dying Fast

Should players be worried?

Dragon Ball FighterZ released a touch over two weeks ago. While games rarely-to-never match their first-week records, how they last over time will tell a lot about how it's expected to last. Unfortunately, if we look at the game's second week, it's worrying.

The popular fighting game had an extremely successful launch. It managed to reach 44,234 concurrent players on Steam, beating out Tekken for highest concurrent players in a fighting game. This is impressive but not surprising, considering the immense hype and marketing that took place before release.

Sounds great, right? What's wrong then?

It's now been two weeks since the game's launch, and the highest concurrent player count of the last 24 hours was only 7,479 players. This is a mere 15 percent of its launch record. Now you may be thinking this is normal, all games have a steep drop after the first week. But when you compare this to Tekken 7, it took that game two months to achieve this same degree of drop.

Don't expect the game to disappear, however. Dragon Ball FighterZ is headlining at this year's EVO, the biggest fighting game convention there is. This will hopefully revitalize the game's player count to greater numbers. Even without that, the fighting game community is a dedicated one. I don't expect this game will "die" anytime soon.
