According to SteamDB, even after its decrease in popularity, which is normal for a game after a big release, Sons of the Forest is still among the 50 most popular games on Steam. Currently, the game occupies the 43rd spot and is ahead of a few powerhouses like Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, NBA 2K23, and Moster Hunter Rise.

Partly thanks to the reveal of Counter-Strike 2 earlier in the week, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is unsurprisingly the most popular game on the platform right now, with a total of 1 million and 68 thousand players. The title is then followed by Valve’s Dota 2, with a total of 565 thousand and 42 concurrent players, and Apex Legends, with a total of 219 thousand players.
