One of the most anticipated games to have been released this year came out today in the form of Ghostwire: Tokyo. The action-adventure game is a one-year timed exclusive on Microsoft Windows and the PlayStation 5, so only these platforms got it. Developed by Tango Gameworks, Ghostwire: Tokyo got a lot of hype pre-release. Its gripping premise and action-based gameplay made it an exciting prospect for players. With all this fanfare, it isn’t surprising that the game has had a good start to its cycle.
Ghostwire: Tokyo has already set the highest player peak on Steam for any Tango Gameworks release. Almost 13,996 players have played the game on the very first day since its release. While the numbers might not seem big, it’s still a great feat by the developer when compared to its previously released games, namely the two installments to its popular survival horror video game series, The Evil Within.
Not huge numbers but Ghostwire Tokyo has set the highest peak players ever for a Tango Gameworks game on Steam
• Ghostwire Tokyo – 13,996

The Evil Within peaked at only 4,499 players on Steam throughout its life cycle. On the other hand, The Evil Within 2 set a peak of 9,918 concurrent players, which is double the first game’s numbers. Ghostwire: Tokyo has done even better than the company’s games with nearly 14,000 players upon release, which is triple that of The Evil Within, and a steady increase from the sequel.
We see the gradual improvement in Tango Gameworks’ products with this trend. The developer has been making some huge strides in recent years. Reviews of Ghostwire: Tokyo have also been highly favorable, impressing both critics and players alike with its impressive action-based design and visuals. The game also has almost 80% positive reviews on Steam, so this performance may come as no surprise.
