Last week, the action game Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales made its debut on Steam. Given the huge success of the first Spider-Man game on PC, Sony was certainly up for it another reason to celebrate set. But the numbers so far speak for themselves rather sobering language. Will the PC version of Miles Morales even become a big flop?
Bad start on Steam
A very clear indication that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is out on PC so far not a great success is provided by the current statistics from Steamdb.info. According to them, the action game released last week has so far reached a peak of just 13,539 concurrent active players. That’s not a lot on its own, especially when compared to the first Spider-Man game it’s actually very sobering. It was Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered that peaked at the time from more than 66,000 playerswho were in the world of superhero adventure at the same time.
Even directly Comparison with ports of other PlayStation games cuts Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales not very good away. It even ranks in the aforementioned category the third last place and is only ahead of Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection (10,851 players at launch) and Sackboy: A Big Adventure (610 players).
What are the reasons?
At the quality of the game this rather low interest of the fans can not lie. Ratings for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales are dropping on Steam so far “very positive” out, even in our detailed test report the port cuts out terrific away. Maybe it’s because of that new protagonists, who has less appeal than Peter Parker. Perhaps Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which will be released over the next year and continue the great success story, does it a little better.
