Thus, the main competitor of “World of Tanks” became the 119th game on Steam (data for yesterday), overcoming this threshold. It is worth noting that this is an online statistic only on Steam (!), About the same number of players play through their own game launcher. Now War Thunder has been in the top 15th place online over the past few days.
The project from Gaijin Entertainment is flying up before our eyes. Over the past year, online games only on Steam have grown 2 times, despite all the problems in the world and a slight stagnation in the industry.
As far as we can tell, the division of Wargaming and the fatigue from WOT/MT contributed to all this, among other things. In 2022, many players moved from World of Tanks to War Thunder. War Thunder is also constantly in the information field of the media and websites due to its community and the marketing of the game is also very good.
