Massively Multiplayer Genre
Massively Multiplayer games released over time
This graph shows games released over the years in the Massively Multiplayer genre and the percentage they represent. The releases count conveys the quantity of games published on Steam each year. It usually follows the increasing amount of Steam games released.
The percentage, on the other hand, gives a better view of the trend a genre follows. It shows if, in proportion, the Massively Multiplayer genre is getting more or less popular. The Review chart will tell us if this trend is a good thing (i.e. players interest is increasing, genre is undercrowded) or if it's the opposite.
The Massively Multiplayer game genre peaked in 2022 with 328 games released. The genre's popularity is in a range between 0.45% in 2010 and 1.8% in 2012.
Keep in mind that the current year is not over, so the number of games released will still increase. But the percentage is usually a good estimate.
