You can love or hate it, but it is said to be the first-ever game on Steam to exceed one million concurrent players every day for an entire year.
One more record for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. You can love or hate it, but it is said to be the first-ever game on Steam to exceed one million concurrent players every day for an entire year.
The phenomenon peaked in January this year with 3.2 million concurrent players, but then suffered a steady decline, hardly managing to squeak past the milestone on September 8. A close call for the team as PUBG was close to losing the streak with the numbers nearly missing 5,000 players on September 5.
As for now, PUBG still remains the most popular game on Steam, leaving DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive behind. What is next for the game? PUBG Corp. plans to address the game’s issues that are “limiting PUBG’s true potential” with the Fix PUBG campaign.
The result is that PUBG has finally fallen below one million peak concurrent players for the first time since September 8, 2017 because of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 beginning private beta testing. PUBG hit 960,0000 concurrent players, but the record-breaking streak is over.
