Ubisoft has revealed that a year on from release, For Honor is currently very healthy, boasting a large player base with a decent portion continuing to play the title every month.
Ubisoft has made a bit of a habit out of keeping their games happy and healthy even if they don’t immediately take off. Rainbow Six: Siege, The Division and Ghost Recon: Wildlands are games that, while not instantly becoming the most popular games in the world on their release, are continually supported until their audience grows to a sustainable state. In the AAA industry that can drop games and forget them if they aren’t the next Call of Duty or Destiny in the first week, it is a refreshing stance. For Honor is no different. The game is continuing to get support and just went under the not insubstantial task of changing its online play to be hosted on dedicated servers. Those go live tomorrow.
“One year after the launch of For Honor, more than 7.5 million players have joined the battlefield, with over 1 million unique players playing every month.”
