MultiVersus, the Smash-like fighter from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, has now surpassed 20 million players. The news was confirmed in an interview from GamesBeat with David Haddad, president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Haddad described the game as a “critical step into that free-to-play, high-definition gaming category that we believe we can really do something meaningful in”, and that they certainly have.

Whilst unsurprising given the broad scope of the available Warner Bros. Discovery IP, this is great news for MultiVersus. The platform fighter genre has been booming since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it isn’t slowing down any time soon. Some have pointed out how MultiVersus total player count is rapidly catching up to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s 28 million players, but this is an unfair fight, seen as the former game is free-to-play. Free-to-play games can reach a huge audience given their low-risk nature for the player.

The free-to-play MultiVersus is easy to jump into.

The success of MultiVersus is sure to result in more content and support in the future – as we already reported earlier this month, we know that Gremlins’ Stripe and DC’s Black Adam are on the way to the game.
