The DbD Playerbase Seems To Be Shrinking At An Alarming Rate...I Wonder Why.
Now, the only data we have available is Steamcharts, which shows DbD at a low right now, when compared to the gigantic growth the game saw last year.
Despite the surge of players from March through June, we are now back to basically the same pre-surge number as March last year.
I have to wonder...why?
I'm still having a lot of fun. The last few new killers have been decent, a lot of nice little changes have been made. Compared to when I started (late 2020 if I recall correctly) it feels significantly better - but this game appears to, at the very least, be stagnating.
Maybe it's because the quarantine measures have started to relax and people are going outside again?
Is it that the 'surge' players just didn't stick around, or went back to/found other games?
Or maybe the game is sort of peaking, and will maintain similar numbers from hereon out - a big spike in the summer, then a steady falloff back to where we are now.
Going to be interesting to see what happens this anniversary event.
