Marvel's Spider-Man Is the Second Biggest PlayStation Launch on Steam

The game saw an all-time peak of 66,436 players surpassing Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone.

Insomniac Games' former PlayStation exclusive Marvel’s Spider-Man was released on PC last week and so far the title is doing quite well in terms of player count. The game kicked off on PC with the second highest concurrent peak on Steam for PlayStation Studios, following only God of War. 

As spotted by games analyst Benji-Sales, Marvel’s Spider-Man saw an all-time peak of 66,436 players making it the second biggest launch for the studio on PC. In terms of concurrent player count, the game has surpassed Horizon Zero Dawn with 56,557 players and Days Gone with 27,450.

However, this figure wasn't enough to pass God of War which reached a peak of 73,529 players during its launch back in January. Still, while God of War outpaces Spider-Man in terms of peak players, Spider-Man's $60 price point is $10 higher than God of War’s, so the title may soon become a bigger launch in terms of revenue.

The next PlayStation titles that will see their launch on PC in the near future are Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection – Miles Morales will launch this fall, a little after the release of the first Spider-Man game, and though the concrete date for the Uncharted release wasn't named yet, the game is also set to launch on PC in the second half of 2022.

Sony recently released its financial results for Q1 2022 reporting a notable decrease in software sales from first-party and third-party studios. However, Q2 saw the release of Spider-Man on PC which could contribute to the company's revenues in the quarter. Besides, renewed PS Plus subscriptions appeared in most key regions only in July, so these figures were not reflected in the company's latest financial report – its first results should appear in the next report that will be released in October.
