Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds breaks 1m concurrent players

Another day, another milestone smashed by the unstoppable Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.

The battle royale title has just surpassed one million concurrent players, marking a new record for the game.

The feat was announced on Twitter by creative director Brendan Greene (below) and follows the news the title had sold ten million units at the start of the week having sold two million copies in two weeks.

If the battle royale game manages to surpass the 1,291,328 peak player figure that Valve's DOTA 2 boasts, then Playerunknown's Battlegrounds will have the highest peak concurrent player figure of any game on Steam ever.
