It was only a matter of time, but boy was that quick. After recently surpassing over 1 million concurrent players
on Steam - making it the second title ever to do so - over the weekend PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds broke the all-time record with 1,348,374 players PUBG-ing at the same time. Taking the crown from previous record holder Dota 2.
This is all according to SteamCharts
, which is known for it's accurate reporting of Steam player data. Dota 2's record of 1,291,328 players had been in place since March 2016. Throw in the fact that Dota 2 is both a Valve property and free-to-play, and PUBG's Early Access status and price-point, and this record becomes all the more impressive.
Now the question is, could it reach 2 million? And that's only because we don't want to see this whole thing stop here.
