Sonic Frontiers launched after much anticipation last week, and though it hasn’t set the world alight with its critical reception, it’s received its fair share of praise from many, series fans in particular. That solid start has been reflected in initial numbers the game has posted as well.

In fact, Sonic Frontiers has already broken the series’ all-time peak concurrent player count record on Steam. As per SteamDB, on launch day, the game saw a peak concurrent count of over 19,181 players. It has surpassed the record previously held by 2D sidescrolling platformer Sonic Mania, which saw a peak concurrent player count of 11,937 players when it launched in 2017.

There was plenty of excitement surrounding Sonic Frontiers in the lead-up to its launch, even though there was no shortage of skepticism either, and that seems to have paved the way for a solid launch. It should be interesting to see how the game performs going forward.

Sonic Frontiers is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
