Nearly ten months after its release, It Takes Two reached a new peak of concurrent players on Steam. On January 2, 24,402 players were in the game at the same time. At the time of writing, the online count was 10 thousand players.
The same day, the Friend's Pass, which lets players join a friend without buying the game, also reached a peak of 11,834 players, bringing the combined count to 36,236 simultaneous players.
The game's latest record was set in March 2021, with a total of 37,349 concurrent players.
This boost in popularity is seemed to be caused by Steam's winter sale and the fact that It Takes Two won the Game of the Year award at The Game Awards 2021.
It Takes Two has 96% positive reviews based on reviews on Steam from more than 55.6 thousand people. The game is available for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
