PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds just can’t stop breaking records, this time surpassing the concurrent player record it set just a few weeks ago.

Over the weekend, PUBG reached 1,523,179 concurrent players on Steam. This a new all-time peak for the game, which only recently beat Dota 2’s 1.2 million.

Here’s a screenshot from Steam Charts showing the figures: Notice the positive gains across the board at the link.


This growth is no doubt the result of the game’s unstoppable momentum in sales. Though the most recent press release pegged it at 10 million copies, the numbers were taken 20 days ago. Now, the game has passed 12 million copies, according to Steamspy.

In other Battlegrounds news, the game’s developer Bluehole recently said that it’s not happy with Fortnite’s Battle Royale mod. After clarifying these comments, it turns out the problem is about more than just Epic copying the PUBG formula.
