Splitgate’s Beta Is A Big Hit On Consoles, Too

Inspired by Portal and Halo, the free-to-play (F2P) sci-fi first-person  Splitgate shooter has continued to show good stats for 2021: 1047 Games has shared them with us.


Splitgate is in beta indefinitely, and perhaps it’s just a good move, as 1047 Games’ creation has been very successful in a short time. The studio prefers to postpone the proper release to ensure that the game and the infrastructure behind it can handle the massive amount of players without regular dropouts (which is not the best thing, especially for a F2P title), and the studio is also trying to expand its staff to do so.

The PC Early Access launch was on May 24, 2019, and the console launch (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One) was on July 27 this year; the console version is being considered by 1047 Games as a re-release, as the gameplay and style have been tweaked. And the stats speak for themselves: since the launch of the console beta, Splitgate has been downloaded by over fifteen million people. In the first half of 2021, 7 billion 626 million 832 thousand 327 portals were opened, a distance of more than 163 billion metres (or 163 million kilometres, if you prefer… the exact number in metres is 163 billion 11 million 470 thousand 780).

1047 Games is so proud of this figure that it even pointed out that the distance between Earth and Mars has been covered three times. In Splitgate, players have spent 6167 years, killed 6 billion 256 million 1828 opponents, 108 billion 42 million 975 thousand 502 shots were fired, the headshot rate is 4.39%, and 2 million 384 thousand 575 kills were performed with portals. The studio has received more than $100 million in funding, which it is spending in part on team expansion, and has already seen some transfers from Electronic Arts, Tencent, Riot and 343.

1047 Games will be sharing a lot about their plans for 2022 and promises cool stuff for January. With cross-play and cross-gen support on consoles, perhaps its success is no coincidence…
