Playerunknown’s Battleground appears to be a huge success on the PC. According to Steamcharts, Bluehole’s battle-royale title has managed to top Grand Theft Auto V and has climbed in the 4th place of Steam’s games with the highest peak player count of all time. Not only that, but according to Steamspy, the game closes to 5 million sold copies, even though it’s still in its Early Access program.
From the looks of it, Playerunknown’s Battleground may be also able to surpass Fallout 4 and reach the third place. Back in November 2015, Fallout 4 had almost 472K concurrent players. Playerunknown’s Battleground currently has 382K concurrent players and this number will obviously increase once the game nears its full release.
Naturally, we don’t expect Bluehole’s title to come close to DOTA 2 that peaked 1.2 million concurrent players in March 2016 or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive that peaked 850K concurrent players in April 2016. Still, it’s amazing what Bluehole has managed to achieve, so kudos to the team!
