PUBG closing on 2 million concurrent players on Steam
Few months back, it seemed impossible that an early-access like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds would ever surpass Dota 2 in concurrent players on Steam. PUBG has broken all types of records in recent weeks, beating Dota 2 and crossing 1 million concurrent players mark on Steam. It appears that the hunger games style online multiplayer game is showing no signs of slowing down at all. According to the latest Steam data charts (source: Kotaku), PUBG may soon reach 2 million concurrent players milestone. PUBG hit 1.96 million concurrent player mark today on Steam.
Steam data also showed that for today, the peak concurrent player base included 16.3 million players. This suggests that about 12% of total Steam players played PUBG today.
PUBG is still an early-access game that first launched this year in March. Since then, PUBG has managed to sale 13 million copies on PC alone. The price tag on PUBG is $30 and development studio Bluehole has indicated that there is no current plan to increase the price when the game officially launches upon completion of early-access program.
