220k numbers on day 1 is crazy (and I'm not sure if that's peak). GTA 5 peaked around 360k concurrent users, and it was a great, polished, hyped game from a beloved developer in one of the most popular game series of all time.

Granted, it came out a long time ago, but I don't think Skyrim ever hit more than 200k concurrent users.

Yet this little indie game from a 15 man dev studio with no track record with mediocre reviews that was overhyped to all fuck that had a $60 pricetag is one of the biggest launches ever.

This is going to be studied in marketing schools for years to come as a way to sell everyone on hype.
