PUBG Surpasses 500,000 Concurrent Players, Reaching #2 On Steam

We’ve reported that it’s the best-selling game of 2017. Now, it’s aiming to take over Steam’s Stats page.

Following yesterday’s major update, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has surpassed 500,000 concurrent players on Steam. This figure makes it the second most popular title on Steam, conquering Counter-Strike: Global Offensive despite still being in Early Access.


PUBG has also ranked second on Twitch during the past two weeks, regularly turning out more than 110,000 active viewers.

Yesterday’s update added a wide range of content, including a new rewards box with collectible vanity items, and a first-person view only mode that we’ve found to be a big deal.

From August 23rd to the 26th, developer Bluehole will host a PUBG eSports tournament at Gamescom, which will likely have high turnout with its $350k prize pool.
