Coffee Stain Publishing and developer Ghost Ship Games have announced that their player count for their co-op mining FPS Deep Rock Galactic has exploded since launching on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on January 4.
The game had a very successful year in 2021 with over 3 million players having played the game. Since launching on PlayStation 4 and 5 and more importantly PlayStation Plus, the total player number has now more than doubled to 10 million players. The game will be free on PlayStation Plus the remainder of January.
Soren Lundgaard, CEO of Ghost Ship Games, had this to say in a press release: “The server list is absolutely packed with new players, and many players have been reaching out to us directly to tell us how much they love the game. We are receiving a lot of suggestions, feedback, and help tracking down bugs and issues.”
“The way Deep Rock Galactic has always been developed is directly with the community,” Soren continues. “We are a small team, undertaking a huge console launch so it is amazing to have the community working with us every step of the way, and we can’t wait to show off what we are going to give back to them in Season 02 this Spring!”
Deep Rock Galactic is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and PC.
