Aside from titles released by Valve, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now the most played title on steam.
Of course, PUBG is still third overall, unable to top CS:GO's 850,485 player peak or Dota 2's 1,291,328.
Other titles now surpassed by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds include Grand Theft Auto V, Payday 2 and No Man's Sky. In fact, PUBG outperformed the latter two combined. It also beat the combined peaks of Civilization VI, Left 4 Dead 2 and Terraria, which were also in the Top 10 most played Steam games.
Its performance is all the more impressive when you consider that the game is still in Early Access.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds managed to generate $11m in its first three days, sell 1m copies in its first 16, and has since gone on to shift over 4m copies. It has also been confirmed for Xbox One, with the possibility of a PS4 release further down the line
We spoke to PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, back in March about the game's initial success and escaping the stigma of Early Access.
Update: Brendan Greene has confirmed that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has now reached 500,000 concurrent users. While that is still far short of CS:GO's peak total, it puts PUBG behind only Dota 2 in terms of concurrent users at this point in time.
We just broke 500k! Thank you all so very much for your continuing support! <3 pic.twitter.com/FXnsy6twGX— PLAYERUNKNOWN (@PLAYERUNKNOWN) August 4, 2017
