PlayerUnknown’s Battlgrounds Pushes Steam Record for Concurrent Players to 3 Million

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

 

In a not-so-surprising development, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has shattered it’s previous record to bring the most number of concurrent players on Steam to over 3 million. Dota 2 holds the record for second place at 1.29 million, but the popular MOBA hasn’t even broken 1 million since February.


 

There were previous reports of PUBG hitting 3 million before, but all these were either misinformed or deliberately faked. SteamDB has also taken to Twitter to announce the competitive shooter’s new record

The milestone’s timing actually makes a lot of sense. The holidays have given the game’s playerbase the time and opportunity to log in at the same time. We should see the number go back down as everyone goes back to their daily routine.

On the darker side of things, BattlEye also announced another milestone for the game: 1.5 million bans. PUBG has been working hard to deal with cheaters for a few months now, delivering numerous cheat-detection updates in the process. Cheaters have proven to be very resilient and resourceful though, so the devs still have a lot of work ahead of them.

Even with the glaring amount of cheaters though, players are still flocking to what is now known to be the standard for battle royale. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds recently went out of early access to its full 1.0 release. It also launched on Xbox One earlier this month under its Game Preview program.

It will be interesting to see how long this game will maintain it’s playerbase, compared to similar games like H1Z1 and Dayz. This one took far less time to get a full release though.

So far, most review sites seem to be giving it to Breath of the Wild.
