The rise and rise of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds continues. Last month it smashed the Steam record for the most concurrent players, surpassing Dota 2’s previous best of 1.3 million, and today it hit an even bigger milestone: 2 million concurrent users. Staggering.
The Early Access battle royale shooter hit 2,016,498 players earlier today, according to Steam’s official stats page. Just under 14 million players are on Steam right now (and today’s peak will likely be just above that), which basically means that one in seven users on the platform are locked into PUBG.
OVER TWO MILLION!! Thank you all, once again, for your continued support October 11, 2017
The game has also broken the 15 million owners barrier, data from SteamSpy shows, and is well on its way to 16 million. The graph below shows a definite uptick in people buying it over the past few days:
