Outriders Is Already The Biggest Launch On Steam In 2021

Square Enix and People Can Fly’s Outriders is finally out (as of 1 April 2021), and it’s already pretty successful at launch. It looks like gamers might not be as tired of looter shooters as initially expected, as the PC version of Outriders has already reached an impressive 71,826+ concurrent players on Steam.

According to independent video game industry analyst @BenjiSales, that incredible number makes Outriders the biggest Steam launch so far in 2021. He even compared it to last year’s Marvel’s Avengers (also published by Square Enix), which only managed to reach an all-time peak of 31,165 players.

“HUGE launch for Outriders on PC / Steam.

It’s already at over 71,826+ concurrent players and is the biggest launch of 2021 on Steam.

For comparison to another recent Square Enix co-op game, Avengers all time peak players is 31,165.

Square Enix and People Can Fly must be thrilled.”

That high concurrent peak for the game isn’t too surprising, considering that Outriders has consistently been on Steam’s top sellers’ list since at least the beginning of March 2021.
