Ghost of Tsushima: DIRECTOR'S CUT Sets New Record for Sony Despite Recent Controversies

Ghost of Tsushima: DIRECTOR'S CUT Sets New Record for Sony Despite Recent Controversies

Ghost of Tsushima: DIRECTOR'S CUT recently released to all players on Steam. On the 16th of May 2024, everyone got access to the award-winning open-world adventure, and just a few days later (that same weekend), it broke a new all-time concurrent peak for Sony games on PC despite its recent controversies.

The previous record holder was God of War (2018), one of the first titles to make it to PC; this particular record was set on its release, on the 10th of January 2022, and has been holding on strong ever since then. Now, however, this proud title belongs to Ghost of Tsushima: DIRECTOR'S CUT, replacing the previous 73,529 for 77,154. This is likely to remain the game's record, as player drop off has begun already, seeing 63,264 players just the day after.

What's most surprising about this, however, is the fact that Sony recently underwent a controversy surrounding this title. Just days before the release, Steam refunded every player residing in 180 countries where PlayStation Network had been banned, and this was following its earlier HELLDIVERS 2 controversy the week before.

Despite this, Ghost of Tsushima: DIRECTOR'S CUT was released to positive reception, with 88% reviews across 10,443 user reviews, featuring Very Positive score. It seems like the repercussions won't be too severe for these controversies, aside from the text box that advertises the requirement for the PlayStation Network Account for online features, like the Legends Mode.
