Battleground hits a new peak of 1.34 million players

I feel like we need to hire a dedicated news writer for all things PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, with the first-person Battle Royale game hitting headlines daily. Battlegrounds




The latest milestone that PUBG has hit is a new peak concurrent player number, with an absolutely flipping huge 1,348,374 gamers at once - completely demolishing any other game right now. This means that Battlegrounds has officially beaten Dota 2's all-time concurrent players record of 1,291,328.


Bluehole recently announced that there have been over 10 million copies of Battlegrounds sold so far, but I'm sure that we'll see the game hit 11 million sometime this week... with sales not slowing down at all, and if anything, they're speeding up.


It was only a week or so ago that creator Brendan 'PlayerUnknown' Greene said that he sees PUBG possibly reaching 100 million users... and as time goes by it doesn't seem so crazy, does it?
