Outriders is “on track to become the company’s next major franchise,” according to publisher Square Enix. The co-op sci-fi shooter, which was developed by People Can Fly, had more than 3.5 million players during it’s first month on the market. Part of that is likely because the game released on Xbox Game Pass at launch. It’s also available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC and Stadia.

“With over 3.5 million unique players, average play times of over 30 hours and extremely high engagement for co-operative play, we and the amazing team at People Can Fly are so excited with this initial success,” said co-head of studio at Square Enix External Studios Jon Brooke.

“Launching a new game IP is never easy and we remain very grateful for the community’s support and feedback – we continue to listen carefully and want to assure everyone that we are committed to improving and enhancing the experience in the coming weeks and months. We also look forward to expanding on Outriders in the future.”

Outriders has obviously been a huge success, but it had several issues at launch, including bugs that wiped out player’s inventories, which People Can Fly have begun to restore. The studio also announced that it is planning another patch to address damage mitigation issues ans is working on a “community appreciation package for fans.”
