PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Overtakes DOTA 2 On Steam, 862K Active Players

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has become a huge success for Bluehole Studios. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has continuously been at work to shatter some records. Back in June, three months into its release on the PC, Bluehole Studios reported that they’ve sold over 4M copies within 3 months of its launch. Fast forward to today, and we could still see the game going strong.

Today, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has finally taken over DOTA 2, a pinnacle on Steam charts that has been the king on Steam for a long time.  Today, Steamcharts, a reputable Steam stats website reported that the game has finally surpassed DOTA 2 in terms of active player count and has also hit its peak of 862,413 peak players a few minutes ago.

The game has brought some immense success to the developers and has also been trending on Twitch catering a host of enthusiast viewers. Now if this success keeps up, there’s no telling how much success the Xbox One release of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds would bring to the table for the studio and if it would even be able to break DOTA 2’s peak active players count that sits at 1.29M.
