New World: Amazons MMO loses almost half of his players - what is it?

After a strong start with overcrowded servers, Amazons MMO New World now has to ask a new problem: the player number has broken down dramatically in recent weeks. There could be several reasons for this development.

Meanwhile, has almost halved the number of active players - although the game continues to be represented in the top 3 of Steam charts.

Reason for the Currently hesitant player behavior could be the numerous bugs, who have always worried about problems since the launch: At the weekend, for example, a new dialogue glitch occurred, the player took another out of the game.
