UPDATE: The two million mark has been crossed!


 
When this all started it seemed a bit unthinkable that Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds would beat Dota 2 and reach 1 million peak concurrent users on Steam. Well now, the game has done that and it’s not downgrading at all, it seems. The Hunger Games-style multiplayer game is closing in on 2 million peak concurrent users. The latest publicly available Steam data (via Kotaku) shows that the game had 1.96 million peak concurrent users today.
Steam data also shows that the service had 16.3 million concurrent users recently, which means around 12 percent of the peak concurrent Steam users today played PUBG. Check out the chart below to get an idea about the margin by which PUBG is killing every other game when it comes to peak concurrent users.

PUBG crossed 1 million peak concurrent users on Steam less than a month ago. So we can only imagine where the game will stand at this point next month. Brendan Greene who is Playerunknown himself says he thinks the game could reach 100 million players.
PUBG launched on Steam Early Access in March this year. It has since exploded in popularity, selling 13 million copies by the latest count. It sells for $30, Bluehole doesn’t plan to increase the price when the game officially launches and when it comes to Xbox One.
