Square Enix has announced that Outriders has surpassed 3.5 million unique players worldwide in its first month alongside revealing what fixes are coming in its next patch.

As previously mentioned, Square Enix shared that the upcoming patch, which is “designed primarily to address the damage mitigation issue,” is in final testing and is planned to be released on May 20, but “that will only be confirmed once it successfully passes through testing.”
The patch will also include crash fixes and added telemetry to help diagnose the outstanding sign-in issues. The team is also still working working on the player appreciation package.
