    What happened to that dev now?

    It was priced dropped in a sale recently. I am sure it is possible to get the game cheaper through other key sellers like it is the case with most PC games.

    Still maintaining the game, IIRC. It's a day-z like game, so it's something he still works on. Shit, at 27 million sales, dude should continue working on it as long as he can. That's a certified major hit, low cost or not. That number is fucking insane. Major props to the dev.

    Just to let everyone know since some were wondering about this - Valve already makes concurrent player count public knowledge. These numbers represent the game having been launched on an account at least once.

    Good for him then. He sounds like a millionaire with all these sales.

    Hopefully, he can work on another project in the future since he has plenty of his life ahead.

    Nice to know that after all this time, TF2 remains one of the biggest titles on Steam.

    I dunno if he's a millionaire -- the game was dirt cheap, like under a dollar or something like that IIRC. And at times, it's also been free. (EDIT: just looked, and it's currently free to play, with a $5 upgrade or something).

    I hope he is financially secure, though. I mean, 27 million players is something major AAA games from thousand-man studios would kill for.

    Im heartened that Terreria is so huge, I have really fond memories with that game. Starbound never grabbed me in the same way (at least its early iterations when I last checked in).

    How cheap do you want it to drop? It was like $25 recently. It is not going to drop below $10 anytime soon.

    I must have missed them recently. Those threads were popping up like a year ago. PUBG never really gets talked about here anymore (unless I'm blind).

    Bluehole has got to get this thing on PS4 and Switch if it's this big!

    GTAV stays at a high price. Alot of these games go on sale for $5 and they get huge sales from that. That's why i wish we had revenue numbers.

    Yeah, wow:

    Code:
    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 13,235,488 72850
    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition    4,398,897    489830
    There's a lot of meat here with these numbers on the whole, but the sheer bulk of the Skyrim numbers still amazes me. I think I'd maybe argue that The Elder Scrolls is in that rarefied tier of gaming phenomenons just under GTA and Minecraft and right alongside stuff like PUBG. Insane for a singleplayer game.

    Rev1 had a two year head start though. Pretty good, all things considered imo
     
  30. It goes by achievements, so I think you'd have to have played the game at least once.

    Those numbers aren't surprising given the last data we had before SteamSpy lost the info. That being said, these numbers don't include people who own a game but never played it so that is going to hit sequels pretty hard. Even if you Trails 3rd, for example, you probably wouldn't install it or launch it if you haven't beat Trails SC.

    Final Fantasy XV is at 490K. That's not bad, but not tremendous.

    Fallout 4 is sitting at 6.6 mil. That's pretty good. Not quite Skyrim, but that has had a few more years and a whole 2nd edition to get to the 13 mil number.

    Edit: Made a mistake of 200K for FFXV. Almost at 500K. Figured they could go higher.

    May I recommend that the OP point out this "method" was used while active, and has since been patched out? This is a fun and illuminating blip-in-time snapshot from July 1 that the public has since lost access to. Kyle's active at the article's comment section itself if you wanna pose questions to him about the data.

    Revelations 1 came out over 2 years before REmake HD, and has been bundled more often at lower tiers.
     
  43. If you get GTAV outside Steam, you don't get it on Steam and it won't count in this number.

    Because Take-Two had the amazing idea of making a new digital store that has only one game, there's probably many people account-sharing Rockstar Social Club accounts.

    AFAIK it's always been a free game, with the option to pay $5 to support the dev (and get some ugly cosmetics and access to ""Gold Servers"" lol) I paid $5 because I had a lot of fun with it for a bit a few years ago.
    Still, I hope he's made a decent amount off of selling the Gold upgrades!

    Yeap, that's the issue. It also hasn't hit any real sales yet (max was 20% I believe). You could see similar drop off between Trails in the Sky FC to SC.

    I am still playing first TiTS, havent started SC and 3rd didnt even have a sale. And I dont wanna buy Cold Steel 1 before 2.

    XSeeds discounts were also strange. During this summer sale TiTS3 was 25% off, Cold Steel 1 was 30% off.
