Tekken 8 Has Nearly Tripled Tekken 7’s Peak Concurrent User Count

The first few weeks of 2024 have thoroughly dispelled the notion that this year was going to be a slower one than the last one, with a string of several excellent new games already having launched in January. Last week, Tekken 8 joined that growing list, and the widespread critical acclaim that Bandai Namco’s fighter has enjoyed is being reflected in its engagement numbers as well.

As per SteamDB, at launch, Tekken 8 hit a peak concurrent user count of nearly 50,000 players on Steam- 49,977, to be precise. That’s well over twice as much as the all-time peak concurrent user count that Tekken 7 saw in its lifetime, at 18,966 players.

Bandai Namco has four DLC characters planned for Tekken 8’s roster over the coming year, with the first, Eddy Gordo, set to arrive this Spring. The other three characters will be added in Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

Tekken 8 is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

yeah, the character creator will surely be why it has fr

glad they got their user count up


Congrats to them on uping there player count.


Hell, i was a Tekken fanboy as a kid and watching all of the newcomers and vets enjoy the game without little to no complaints makes me want to go buy another arcade stick and start training again

It probably has a lot to do with the character creator also, I've seen some funny remakes of famous anime characters and celebs like Drake
