A few days ago yet another (former) PlayStation exclusive was released on Steam: Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales. The game was certainly successful on consoles, but how did it fare on PC? Using as a reference point the maximum number of simultaneous players in the first 24 hours (as indicated by SteamDB), we can see that it was the second best launch for Sony. Precisely, it achieved a peak of 12,662 players. Here’s how much it did compared to other PlayStation games on Steam:
God of War – peak 15,162 players in first 24 hours Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales – peak 12,662 players in first 24 hours Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered – peak 5,800 players in first 24 hours Days Gone – peak 4,473 players in first 24 hours 24 hours Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition – peak 3,853 players in first 24 hours Uncharted Legacy of Thieves – peak 2,718 players in first 24 hours Sackboy A Great Adventure – peak 203 players in first 24 hours
Obviously this type of data is not indicative of the total success of a game, but it does give an idea of the order of magnitude of player interest. It is very interesting that at launch Miles Morales has doubled the players of the first chapter, as a peak.
As a comparison, though, we can see the maximum players for PlayStation games on Steam from release to date:
God of War – peak 73,528 players Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered – peak 66,436 players Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition – peak 56,557 players Days Gone – peak 27,450 players Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales – peak 13,539 Uncharted players Legacy of Thieves Collection – peak 10,851 players Sackboy A Great Adventure – peak 610 players
As you can see, Miles Morales has already broken the peak of Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collectionas well as Sackboy’s Great Adventure which however has clearly not attracted the attention of the players, so the comparison is merciless.
We will have to see in a few months if Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales will be able to match its predecessor on Steam in terms of maximum player peak. The premises are all there.
Finally, you can see how Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales ranked on Steam.
