Stray PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Stray is shaping up to be a bonafide hit, even if we were just to judge its performance from anecdotal incidents like the phenomenon that is @CatsWatchStray, or the reemergence of the Deus Ex Twitter account just to meme about kitties.

Thankfully, we do have some more concrete numbers to go by. They are from the PC version of the game, but it's probably safe to assume even more are playing on PlayStation, considering Stray was made available via PS Plus Extra from launch

After Benji's post, Stray numbers actually continued to rise, peaking at just shy of 63,000 concurrent on Steam. That's far and away the most simultaneous players developer Annapurna Interactive has racked up on a PC game at launch (thanks, VGC).

We will need to wait until Sony releases some official PlayStation numbers to know just how big of a hit Stray was on our beloved platform, and we will update you as soon as they do. In the meantime, if you're still on the fence, check out our in-depth review.
