◎ ‘Super People’ showing a drop in concurrent users, preparing for a large-scale update in December

– Wonder People’s new battle, ‘Super People’, showed a downward trend of 6 places compared to last week. The result of the number of concurrent users, which has gradually decreased since its release, seems to have had some effect. Super People recorded the highest number of concurrent users of about 47,000 on the Steam chart right after the Steam launch, but after about two months, the highest number of concurrent users in the game has dropped to 19,000.

Super People will have a large scale update in December. In order to revive rapid growth and rapid battles, we have prepared a major reorganization plan, and in the process, class levels and gun ratings are also scheduled to be simplified. We will have to wait and see if we can reverse the steps of the users who left the game with a large scale update.
