May 24, 2019 Dauntless player counts continue to grow – now they’re over four million.
Monster Hunter-like Dauntless has continued to see success over its early access period, and it’s hit some big new milestones following its proper launch on May 21. The final release of the game across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games store has brought the total player count over four million worldwide.
The 24 hours after launch on the new platforms saw the game gain 500,000 new players – not a bad start to Phoenix Labs’ planned march to nine million. The release is especially notable for including full cross-play across all three platforms, which games like Rocket League and Fortnite have only implemented after interminable waits with platform holders (mostly Sony).
Dauntless’s previous player count milestones saw it pick up about one million players between the open beta launch on May 24, 2018 and June 6. In July, the number reached over two million. Around March of this year, the number was around three million.
The launch of Monster Hunter World on PC certainly gave Dauntless some bigger name competition, but even with the biggest game in the genre competing on the same platforms, Dauntless is doing just fine.
