3 million concurrent players is definitely an astounding number, but it surely isn’t an surprising one. PUBG stormed past A million concurrent players in September and a pair of million in October C passing 3 million almost appeared like an inevitability. To get these numbers in context, Steam’s second-most popular game, Dota 2, has never meant it was past 1.3 million concurrent players. So, the way far could PUBG go? The game’s developers have predicted they will hit 100 million copies sold, after which, Ten million (or higher) concurrent players can occur. Right this moment, this reveals too plausible.
Today also saw PUBG pass another, less commendable, milestone C as outlined by anti-cheat company BattlEye, PUBG has gotten the ban hammer down an incredible 1.5 million times. You are aware of you’re successful when you have rejected more players than most games have total sales.
Update to the number of PUBG bans: 1,500,000.
