Both titles were in the Platinum tier for 2019’s top-sellers, best new releases and most simultaneous players.
Steam recently released its Best of 2019 Charts which highlight the top new releases of 2019, the best-sellers of the year, games with the most simultaneous players and much more. To the surprise of no one, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Total War: Three Kingdoms factor in the Platinum tier for both the top new releases charts and the best-sellers charts. They also appeared in the chart for most simultaneous players in Platinum tier.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was noted for having the biggest launch on Steam earlier this year with peak concurrent player counts hitting almost 125,000 at the time. Total War: Three Kingdoms would surpass that with its launch, hitting a peak concurrent player count of nearly 192,000 players at launch. Of course among the top sellers of 2019 were several titles like Warframe, Dota 2, Grand Theft Auto 5 and so on.
Each category for the charts is divided into tiers with Platinum being the highest and Bronze being the lowest. Steam doesn’t outright reveal which games ranked higher than others in terms of sales but this does provide a window into the biggest games on the platform in 2019. What does 2020 hold in that regard? Stay tuned as the new year is upon us.
