If you're curious as to how many people are playing the title by Embark Studios, we'll walk you through how to check. You might be surprised at what you see, considering how new the game is and the fact that it's free.

How you can check The Finals player count at any time

There is one pretty reliable source you can use to check The Finals player count. Just take note that this only accounts for players on Steam. If you head to SteamDB and check out their Steam Charts, you'll get tons of information.

If you sign up for free, you can see even more, but here's what you can get just by going to the website:

  • Current players in The Finals
  • 24-hour peak
  • All-time peak
  • Steam store data
  • Twitch stats
  • Owner estimations

At the time of publication, you can see a drastic decrease in the Steam player count of The Finals. The all-time peak was over 240,000 and now only around 45,000 players are online. Of course, that number is probably larger when you factor in PlayStation and Xbox users.

So, what about the console players? You're probably wondering how many there are. Well, unfortunately, there isn't a reliable source to calculate console player base like there is for Steam users. That can give some much needed, or even false hope depending on how you look at it.

If you think The Finals is headed in the wrong direction because of the player count, you can think of the unknown amount of console contestants as a beacon. Or you can pretend they don't exist and assume the game is dying.

It's up to you, but just know that Embark Studios is doing their best to keep things fresh. Constant updates and patch notes containing their contents prove they want to balance the shooter and make competition in it thrive for anyone who wants to play.
