Ghostwire: Tokyo surpasses 4 million players

Ghostwire: Tokyo was one of the more forgotten games of 2022. Originally pitched as a PlayStation exclusive, the game’s developers (Tango Gameworks) ended up being acquired by Microsoft midway through development. Following a year’s long exclusivity period, the game finally released on Xbox and Game Pass – helping to push the game to over 4 million players.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the official Ghostwire: Tokyo account said “Thank you to 4 million fans thus far who have taken a thrilling tour of @TangoGameworks' Tokyo!”

As mentioned, Ghostwire Tokyo first launched exclusively on PS5 (and PC) in March of 2022. Just over one year later the game was added to Sony’s PlayStation Plus Extra tier. Just a few weeks after that, the game also came to Xbox as well as Microsoft’s Game Pass service for both consoles and PC – undoubtedly aiding with this new influx of players.

For the uninitiated, Ghostwire: Tokyo is a first-person open world game which sees you taking the role of Akito, trying to save the city of Tokyo and his sister after a mysterious fog has caused the city’s population to disappear.

Though not the most innovative game, its flashy first-person shooting mechanics and the game’s overall aesthetic lends to a game which is both familiar yet new – making for a fun playthrough.

With both Ghostwire: Tokyo and Hi-Fi RUSH seeing a great deal of success, it will be interesting to see what Tango Gameworks plans to work on next.
