With EA now releasing games on Steam, it seems this has revived some of the older games released this generation. One of these said games is Respawn’s Titanfall 2, as the the Titanfall 2 PC player count has skyrocketed to the top of the charts.
Over on Reddit, the official PlayTracker account was attributed since it mentioned that Titanfall 2 hit the #5 spot in the charts with over 650,000 owners.
Titanfall 2 launched on @Steam recently and hit PlayTracker Insight's trending games chart at #3 with ~650K owners.
However, because the Steam version connects to Origin, this Steam release has also caused the Origin version of Titanfall 2 to hit our trending games chart at #5! pic.twitter.com/7MnJrBNyz1

While you won’t see anywhere near 650,000 people playing multiplayer, the Titanfall 2 PC player count has risen to over 10,000 players regularly, which is good enough to beat even some Call of Duty and Battlefield games on the platform.
Given how much I adore Titanfall 2, I’m all for this. Could this somehow push Respawn to develop Titanfall 3 though? I wouldn’t hold my breath given the studio’s latest statements about it. Regardless of platform, if you haven’t picked Titanfall 2 up, I suggest you do. It’s possibly the best shooter this generation, which is a fact we touch upon in our Best Multiplayer Shooters of the Decade feature.
If you’re on Xbox One, and PS4, how’s the multiplayer player count? Is it still high on PS4 even after the game’s freebie period on PlayStation Plus? Let us know down below in the comments.
