News: The most played non-Valve game on Steam is now PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
Brendan Greene, otherwise known as the actual PlayerUnknown, Tweeted yesterday that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds now has the record for the most peak players of any non-Valve game on Steam. Because of course it does.
'Peak players' means the most people playing the game on steam at once, which for PUBG is just under half a million. This puts it in third place, behind Dota 2 and CS:GO, and just above Fallout 4. PUBG's rise has been meteoric, and shows little sign of slowing down, although it'll probably take a while to top Dota 2's peak player count of over a million.
The best part, of course, is that technically PUBG isn't even out yet: it's still in Steam's early access programme, with a full release due later this year (with an Xbox release following by the end of 2017, and PS4 some time after that.
