In the first month since release, Outriders has attracted 3.5 million unique players.

Publisher Square Enix has announced this. According to the company, this could make Outriders “the publisher’s next big franchise.” “We and the incredible team at People Can Fly are so happy with this success,” said Jon Brooke, Co-Head of Square Enix External Studios.

He continues, “It’s never easy to launch a new IP and we remain grateful for the support and feedback from players – we will continue to listen closely and emphasize that we will continue to improve the experience over the coming weeks and months.”

Outriders released April 1 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and Google Stadia. In-game players can create their own ‘Outrider’ and search for the source of a mysterious signal. In total, the game can be played with three players at the same time.
