July 24, 2019 Rainbow Six Siege player count grabs yet another record.
Rainbow Six Siege player count continues to grow, and long after the game’s launch back in 2015 it seems it’s more successful than ever. After reaching a total of 45 million players earlier this year, Siege has just had its best month ever in terms of monthly active users in June, and one of its best months for in-game spending.
That info comes courtesy of SuperData, though sadly we don’t have specific numbers the MAU count. Steam Charts shows a respectable but not unusual peak of 140k for the month, significantly behind the 176k Steam peak of 2018. That means the numbers for June are likely buoyed by consoles and Uplay, and Siege did have a free weekend that month, as well.
We do have one hard number for this update: $36.8 million. That’s how much in-game revenue Siege generated in June, across all platforms. That’s up 9% from the same month last year, and represents the sixth most profitable month the game has ever had.
The developers announced that Siege had reached 45 million players back in February. Ubisoft’s previous announcements included 20 million in August 2017, 30 million in April 2018, on through to 35 million at E3 and 40 million in October 2018.
We learned about Ubisoft’s PC sales thanks to the publisher’s financial report a week ago, too. It’s now the company’s most profitable platform, and much of Ubi’s quarterly success is attributed to Rainbow Six Siege.
