PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) passes another major milestone as it reaches two million concurrent players, as shown by the steam daily data.
PUBG passes 2 million players!
At first, when PUBG spiked in popularity, it seemed that it is a game that will eventually cool down in terms of player count, but in reality, the exact opposite happened. It quickly reached 1 million concurrent players, passing Dota 2, and didn’t slow down.
The battle royale PvP title is quickly closing in on the 2 million mark, as shown by the public steam data. The data also showed that almost 16.3 million players were active today. So, it means that PUBG is now responsible for 12 percent of the entire concurrent Steam count. Wow! Check the image out below if you don’t wanna click the link!
The CEO of Bluehole studios, Brendan Greene, even thinks that the game can pass 100 million players. That is, if the popularity is constant. So, given the quick rise of players, we think that is possible, if not the least, easy.
What is PUBG?
PUBG is a Battle Royale game that released as an early access title on March 2017. It pits over 100 players in a death battle in which only one should survive. Players can find weapons, health kits, ammo and other necessities scattered throughout the map in different bunkers, and must use all they have in their arsenal to be the last man standing. The title is only available with PC, and will soon be available on Xbox One at the end of the year. The PS4 release is pretty far, as Bluehole Studios is looking to extend the Xbox One exclusivity deal.
