The Early Access version of BattleBit, the new low-poly FPS taking Steam by storm, announced over the weekend that the game had become the Best Selling Game on the Steam Platform. With an all-time peak concurrent user base of over 87,000 players, the game is making strides on the Steam top 20 and 30 lists.
In the announcement, the team working on the game said that in the first week, there weren’t many server issues, that DDoS or distributed denial-of-service affected the game’s performance, but that the issue had since been resolved. According to the post,
A determined group of individuals who previously failed to take down our servers found a weak point in our firewall and started attacking any server they wanted using this weakness. They also started DDOSing servers that Content Creators were in to inflict as much damage to BattleBit’s reputation as possible.
This is an unfortunate reality of the internet, generally, that people want to take down the next successful project for whatever reason. Whether it be envy or just in the name of chaos, it seems, at least for now, that the developers of BattleBit: Remastered have fended off the attacks and are currently and actively banning cheaters, hackers, and racists daily.
Though official sales numbers have not been announced, some estimates speculate that the game has sold at least a million copies since its release.
BattleBit Remastered is available on Steam for PC.
