PUBG Continues To Break Records On Steam

PUBG Continues To Break Records On Steam

Steam's all-time record for the most concurrent players has been broken by the game that nearly everyone is talking about these days: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

It's been less than six months since the Early Access release of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and already the game has sold over 10 million copies. While these figures may not be quite as exact as Steam's own, they should be in the right ballpark, and all of these stats place PUBG's record roughly 50k players ahead of Dota 2's.

Games like Rust and Grand Theft Auto Online show the players for the whole game, not just the survival mode they feature, putting them above the likes of ARK: Survival Of The Fittest and free to play Last Man Standing.

Greene, when speaking to Polygon, stated that much of the team working on PUBG couldn't even believe it, stating that "when we hit that first million, there were a lot of smiles around the office". According to Greene, the studio thought that a number between 200,000 and 300,000 was a more appropriate amount for the game's first year.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now available in Early Access on Steam for the PC, and an Xbox One version is coming later this year.
