PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Tops 1M Concurrent Players

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Tops 1M Concurrent Players

After briefly becoming the most played game on Steam, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has hit another milestone. The battle royale game surpassed 1 million concurrent players late last week, hitting a peak of 1,028,275.

[Update] 12/09/2017, 9:43AM. As of yesterday, the game hit a new peak of 1,111,155 concurrent players.

For context, Dota 2 – a free-to-play title – had a peak of 766,298 concurrent players last week. As GameSpot points out, that isn’t enough to break the record. Dota 2 still holds that number, with 1,295,114 concurrent players.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds released on Steam Early Access earlier this year. Since then, it’s gone from strength-to-strength. The game has sold over 10 million copies, just six months after launch. It’s also slated to arrive on Xbox One later this year.
