PUBG Blows by DOTA 2's Concurrent User Record

PUBG Blows by DOTA 2's Concurrent User Record - MMORPG.com

DOTA 2 has long held the Steam record for the most players taking part in the game at the same time. At least it did through last Saturday when the juggernaut called PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds blew by the old record by nearly 50,000 players. 1,342,857 players were online at the same time, easily outpacing DOTA 2's 1,295,114. The big announcement was made on the game's official Twitter account on Saturday.

Keep in mind that this is Steam only and does not include every game on the market. For instance, GameReactor points out that Riot's League of Legends has had over five million players concurrently playing the game more than a few times. Still, it's an impressive feat to knock off DOTA 2 and promises a bright future for the game.
