Brendan Greene’s Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has just firmly cemented its place as one of the biggest games in the world right now.
According to SteamSpy (below), with info from SteamDB, the battle royale title just surpassed DOTA 2’s concurrent player figures for the first time. This is the game with the highest concurrent player figure on Steam.
The title is yet to beat the MOBA’s peak concurrent player figures – which would require 1.3m people to be playing the game at any given time – but it’s a sign that Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t slowing down just yet.
Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds has smashed 8m unit sales since its launch at the end of March. The game sold its first 4m units in three months, by June 2017, but two months later, in mid-August, the project sold its second 4m copies.
In July, PUBG smashed Grand Theft Auto V's peak concurrent player figures.
Prior to all this, we spoke to Greene about the success of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds to see how the game came about and what his plans for the future were.
Greene was also one of the PCGamesInsider.biz Top 20 Developers to Watch.
