Nobody is playing Babylon’s Fall—and that’s a statement that can be taken quite literally. Metrics from tracker site SteamCharts have revealed that Square Enix’s cooperative fantasy RPG only saw one player at around midnight on Wednesday, May 4, a shockingly embarrassing stat, especially considering the fact that the game is still relatively new, having released on March 3, 2022, and from a major publisher. SteamCharts’ data can also reveal that Babylon’s Fall failed to attract more than 77 concurrent players at any point this week.
Babylon’s Fall was widely panned by critics when it launched in March. According to review aggregator Metacritic, the title is by far the worst reviewed game so far on PS5 and the worst game of the year.
Despite the game’s slow start, Square Enix and PlatinumGames moved quickly to insist that Babylon’s Fall development was not in danger.
The post insisted that there were “no plans to reduce the scale of development” on Babylon’s Fall, and claimed that content up until the game’s second season is “practically complete”, with work on Season 3 already started.
