Palworld’s Server Costs: Shaking the Gaming World with Staggering Figures

Palworld is a game that has been making a lot of noise in the gaming world. But this popularity comes at a price: staggering server costs.

Palworld’s Success and Server Costs

From the moment it was released, Palworld became the number one agenda item in the gaming world. It broke the record of Counter-Strike 2 by reaching 2.1 million players instantly and became the 2nd game with the highest number of instant players of all time on Steam. However, it’s a fact that this success has brought an additional cost to the developer Pocketpair.

According to the information shared by Pocketpair CEO Takuro Mizobe, Palworld’s server cost increased by 359% with the release of the early access version and reached $470,000. This means that if Palworld can maintain its number of players, it will have a server cost of approximately $5.6 million per year.

Costs Overlooked for Players

Chujo Hiroto, the engineer responsible for Palworld’s network services, quoted Mizobe’s tweet and said, “We did not consider the cost while preparing the servers for the game in accordance with the instructions to ensure that the game services do not fail no matter what. We will continue to do our best to ensure that all players can fully enjoy.” indicating that they are currently overlooking costs to satisfy players.


Palworld’s server costs have made a big impact in the gaming world. However, the developer team is willing to bear these costs to ensure player satisfaction. This situation of Palworld could be a turning point in the gaming world. Server costs have now become a factor that game developers cannot ignore.
