A month on from the game's January 31 launch, developer Edge of Reality has revealed that its free-to-play first person shooter Loadout had over two million player accounts created in its first 14 days, a feat matched only by some of the biggest PC games on Steam.
Players have logged a total of over 9 million hours in Loadout, and it currently stands as one of the top five most popular F2P titles on Steam.

"The near-overnight success of Loadout has been simultaneously humbling and exhilarating," said Rob Cohen, CEO of Edge of Reality. "Our community means everything to us, and we can't thank them enough for helping to make Loadout what it is today."

Since its official release on January 31 of this year, Loadout has been wildly popular – so popular, in fact, that it made getting into the game on day one quite the feat. To prepare for the mass influx of people, Edge of Reality set up additional infrastructure, but even those precautions proved insufficient to meet demand.

"The incredible surge of interest at launch shattered all our expectations, and it unfortunately just became too much for our servers to handle in the beginning," added Cohen. "Very few Steam titles have reached the peak concurrent users we achieved upon release. We're committed to delivering an excellent game to our community, and we continue to work hard to ensure that our servers provide all our players with the same fluid, responsive, and enjoyable experience across the board."
