With over 10 million copies sold, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has now hit the staggering stat of over one million concurrent players on Steam. That’s absolutely incredible, all things considered. The game isn’t even officially out, yet people can’t get enough.
At its peak (as of this writing), PUBG hit 1,028,540 concurrent players—nearly 200,000 more than Dota 2 and nearly a half a million more than CS:GO. These are two of Steam’s juggernauts, but PUBG is just breezing by them.
This isn’t the first time PUBG has surpassed Dota 2 in concurrent players, but Valve’s multiplayer online battle arena game still has PUBG beat in one area: the record for the most concurrent players ever at 1,291,328.
With so much momentum behind PUBG, however, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the online shooter surpass that record. It seems like every month another million copies of the game are sold, so it’s just a matter of when, not if.
PUBG has yet to leave Steam Early Access, making the game’s meteoric rise particularly impressive. Since its availability in March, the game has received several updates aimed at improving the game’s overall experience and stability.
PlayerUnknown himself Brendan Greene has said the final version of the game could arrive by the end of the year. In the meantime, PUBG is expected to get new weapons, a vaulting mechanic, and a few new maps.
