 Multiversus has been played by 20m people

Free-to-play brawler Multiversus has been played by over 20 million people to date.

The title hit this milestone under one month after the game's beta period, which started on July 26th, ahead of its proper release on August 15th.

Multiversus was developed by Player First Games and features characters from Warner Bros' suite of intellectual properties, including Game of Thrones, Rick and Morty and DC.

“We had a fantastic first half of the year, really driven by the results of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. And we’re so excited to get off to such a great start in the second half with MultiVersus,” WBIE president David Haddad told GamesBeat.

“For us, MultiVersus is such an important critical step into that free-to-play, high-definition gaming category that we believe we can really do something meaningful in, in this case with a collection of our IP, and building a game from scratch that’s designed for live services and cross platform. And we’re thrilled to see by the 20 million that fans are really responding to it.”
