Rust has seen significant growth the past year

Rust was launched 7 years ago, while it has always been quite popular it has seen significant growth recently, boosted by e popular Twitch streamers, but also likely due to the massive growth in gaming the past year + no GPUs available to buy to run modern gamers like Cyberpunk well.

Rust had an average Steam player count of almost 118,000 at any given time in February. It also has a very positive rating on steam and as you can see from the reviews, they ticked up in late 2019 then received the largest number of reviews in January 2021.

Console launch took so long due to old hardware

The launch on consoles has been delayed because the PS4 and Xbox One are so old they struggled getting it optimised properly for the previous generation of consoles. During the first console test, it took as long as 45 minutes to load the game’s huge map. Double Eleven managed to crush the loading time down to around a minute.
