It seems the bad press is finally getting to No Man’s Sky players. According to statistics from SteamSpy posted by reddit user /u/Skoonk, No Man’s Sky‘s active playerbase has dropped by 90% since the game’s release.
To put it in basic numbers, that’s about 150,000 players dropping to about 10,000. Ouch. I guess infinite space kind of loses its luster after a while when there’s nothing to really do in it, though it could also be the apparent abundance of crashes and bugs in the PC version. Makes me glad I never jumped on the hype bandwagon.
