Palworld encourages players to play other games while waiting for new content

A team member from the development crew of Palworld has recently suggested that players should feel free to explore other games while awaiting new updates for Palworld. The advice came from the game’s community manager, known as ‘Bucky’, who responded to concerns about the game’s declining player numbers by labeling such concerns as “lazy”.

Despite a decrease in daily players to approximately 500,000 from a peak of 2.1 million shortly after its launch, Palworld remains highly popular on SteamDB’s ranking of most played games. Bucky’s message on social media platform X emphasized that Palworld, a game that doesn’t frequently release new content, welcomes players to take breaks and enjoy other titles, assuring them there’s no need for guilt in game-hopping.

Bucky highlighted that the team is diligently working on resolving current issues and developing new content and characters for the game. He reassured players that taking a break from Palworld is perfectly acceptable and encouraged them to explore a variety of games, including indie titles, until Palworld is ready to offer fresh experiences.

Since its early access release on PC and Xbox the previous month, Palworld has quickly risen to fame, selling 12 million copies on Steam and attracting 7 million Xbox players by February 1. However, its success has sparked debates over its character designs’ similarities to those in Pokémon games, leading to scrutiny from both The Pokémon Company and Nintendo’s Shuntaro Furukawa regarding potential intellectual property rights infringements.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
