PUBG Becomes Biggest Game on Steam, Briefly Surpasses Dota 2

Not content to just shatter sales milestones, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds briefly became the most played game on Steam. The battle royale shooter beat Valve’s MOBA Dota 2, passing over 800,000 concurrent players.

As GameSpot points out, this isn’t the highest number of concurrent players. Dota 2 currently holds a record of 1 million players in a single day. But given that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a fully-paid product – compared to Dota 2, which is free-to-play – the figure is impressive.

PUBG is headed to Xbox One later this year, thanks to a partnership with Microsoft. It’s unclear if this publishing deal means the game won’t be headed to other systems. The game hit PC on Steam Early Access in March 2017.

What an amazing success story. Shows that heavy marketing and super refined big publisher driven development isn't the only way to dominate the conversation.
