MultiVersus Reportedly Charts at Least 7 Million Players in First Week

About a week removed from its open beta soft launch, it appears MultiVersus has tallied at least seven million players.

Player First Games’ new, big-budget free-to-play platform fighter features multiple online modes, including a team-based 2-v-2 format, 1-v-1 matches and 4-player free-for-all, along with an expanding cast of iconic characters and legendary universes under the Warner Bros. umbrella.

The MultiVersus Open Beta is available for free on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store) with full cross-play and cross-progression support across all platforms.

Unfortunately, it’s generally tough to get a clear, exact official number of the player counts of games as developers often don’t share their player data outside of when they hit new milestones.

Warner Bros. Games, for instance, has yet to release any official metrics on MultiVersus so far.

However, it is possible to get a sense of how successful MultiVersus has been recently thanks to two third-party sources.

According to SteamDB at the time of publication, Multiversus charted an all-time peak of 153,433 concurrent players on the Valve storefront alone on July 27.

Additionally, the fighting game remains to be the fourth most popular title on the platform, besting the likes of Apex Legends, Grand Theft Auto V and PUBG: Battlegrounds with around 50,000 to 140,000 concurrent players daily.

This, of course, also doesn’t take into account players from PlayStation, Xbox and Epic Games.

on monday, PC gamers reported that after 29 matches, a player was ranked 4,929,968 worldwide.

Interestingly enough, I used the same methodology to discover that my friend is currently ranked 6,977,237th.

Ultimately, with plenty of more updates on the way, as well as the Open Beta’s $100,000 Evo Tournamentit seems MultiVersus is definitely doing the free-to-play, fighting game genre justice.
