ACC player counts in review: June 2022

Back in March, we received the Challengers DLC for Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). This largely affected April’s numbers. So much so, that even May was still riding its coattails(and that of a free weekend). I expected the numbers for June to drop to somewhere around 4500 average peak concurrently as Summer is closing in. As we’ve seen in the past few years, June historically sees a steep decline in player activity: 8.5% in 2020 and 11.4% in 2021. Will June 2022 show a similar drop? How far was I off...

ACC player counts in review: May 2022

Boosted by the release of the Challengers DLC, last month saw Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) reach a lot of new records in terms of player activity. I expected player counts for this month, May 2022, to drop. Now that the month is over and we have safely reached June, it is time to look back. Did the player counts drop? And if so, by how much? Read on to find out! In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this since March 2020 – I analyze the playercounts from...

ACC player counts in review: March 2022

“I hope we receive news from either 505 or Kunos themselves regarding the potential release date of said car pack”, I said in February’s post. And that is exactly what we got. We did not only get the word about it – we got it. Want to know how this influenced the player statistics of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC)? Read on to find out! In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this since March 2020 – I analyze the playercounts from Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) using data from...

As the sun starts to shine, the birds start to sing and the bombs drop in Ukraine, we’ve made it to March. After a record-breaking January 2022, how have Assetto Corsa Competizione’s (ACC) player numbers developed over February 2022? Read on to find out! In this series of articles – I’ve been doing this since March 2020 – I analyze the playercounts from Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) using data from both steamdb and steamcharts.

ACC player counts in review: January 2022

It is now February. February 5th, to be precise. High time to post another player count in review. A bit later than normal, due to an unfortunate but brief spell of coronavirus on my part. Better late than never. December showed a lot of promise for the future. Did January deliver on this promise? To be brief: yes, it most certainly did. In multiple ways, January set new records in player activity. Read on below to discover just how good these records really are. A short TL;DR in advance: January...

ACC in 2021: a year in (player count) numbers!

In 2021 (like in 2020) I kept track of the player numbers of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC). I published monthly updates detailing the rise, fall (and subsequent rise) of activity in what I think is the best racing simulator out there. Like I did last year for 2020, this post will be a summary of events and statistics taking the year as a whole. First, I will review what happened in regards to player activity based on each quarter (Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4) and explain notable peaks. Second, I...

ACC player counts in review: December 2021

Hey. You. Yes, you. Happy new year! It’s January 1st, 2022. Another year has flown, or rather ‘raced’, by. As I’m preparing my upcoming “2021 Playercounts in review”, first I’ll look back on December 2021 in this post. How did Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC) perform this past month, and can we take any conclusions from it? Last month, November 2021, we had the v1.8 update, which added the 2022 BMW M4 GT3 car and a host of quality of life upgrades. I suspected that, at the time of writing the...

ACC player counts in review: November 2021

Last month, as I wrote in my October review, I had given up hope of seeing the 1.8 update of ACC in 2021. Of course, this turned out to be nothing but another commentator’s curse. On Wednesday the 24th of November, the update finally dropped. In this episode of “Playercount in review”, I’ll dive into the numbers to see what this update has brought us in terms of player activity. Spoiler alert: a whole damn lot. A short TL;DR in advance: November 2021 started out with a slight decline, with...

ACC player counts in review: October 2021

The days are running shorter. The temperature is going down. And, another month has run its course. November 1st marks another month done, meaning we will once again reflect on ACC’s player statistics (note: I started writing this on Nov. 1st). Last month, I was cautiously optimistic as I expected the declining weather would put people back in their driver’s seat. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Instead of a slight growth, the numbers show consolidation. A short TL;DR in advance: November 2021 was another month of consolidation despite not...
