When the highly anticipated Dragon Ball FighterZ game came out littler over two weeks ago, it was met with a lot of excitement and outstanding download numbers. Steam's own player base was impressive at launch, but since then has taken a dramatic turn for the worse.
According to GitHyp, the concurrent player count for the Dragon Ball fighter have tanked by 80%, dropping just over 9,000 (which is a hilarious coincidence, by the way). Though the game didn't launch to the most stellar reviews, seeing such a steep decline so quickly is surprising. Despite some of the complaints about the latest title, the animations and overall setup were phenomenal.
The game was also a huge seller for Bandai Namco, raking in an impressive 65.4 million yen and even holding a spot for EVO 2018. With the tournament spotlight, it will be interesting to see if this number fluctuates for the better or if it's down for the count. Only time will tell regarding how many active players on the PC platform will still be engaged, but the reviews since its January 26th launch on PC are still held at "very positive."
