Well, it’s official. Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is the biggest game on Steam.
Over the weekend, the battle royale game was played by 1,348,374 people, making it the title with the highest concurrent player count ever on Steam. The previous record holder, Valve’s own DOTA 2, boasted a 1,291,328 player all-time peak.
The title’s creative director Brendan Greene took to Twitter (below) to celebrate the good news, which, let’s be honest, doesn’t exactly come as a surprise.
The title has sold 10m copies - at last official announcement – having only been out since March 23rd. What’s more is that the game isn’t even finished.
Oh, and sales of the battle royale early access darling aren’t slowing down either. During its first three months, it sold 4m copies, before it sold another 4m in just two months. Then the title sold 2m copies in two weeks. Greene himself has said he can see the title selling 100m units.
