Ninja Theory’s Bleeding Edge not doing great despite warm reception

Bleeding Edge, a 4v4 multiplayer shooter/brawler from Hellblade developer Ninja Theory, came out 24 March 2020 on Xbox One and PC.

With its cartoonish visuals and a cast of colorful characters, it’s easy to see Bleeding Edge as a kind of third-person Overwatch. However, despite positive reviews on Steam, the title doesn’t even begin to compare to the popularity of Epic Games’s megahit.

It peaked at 1,464 concurrent players on the launch day, with just 402 people in the game as of the time of publication.

Eurogamer suggests this might be to do with the fact that “It has released in such a bare bones state that it feels like a soft launch rather than a full release.”

We are yet to see how Ninja Theory will try to fix the game.
