These figures come from the stat-tracking site Steam Charts, and the official Battlegrounds Twitter account was quick to boast of the achievement.

It seems like the sky might be the limit for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, as just yesterday the game has accomplished a very important milestone.

It was just last week that PUBG cracked one million concurrent players, so the game has added no less than 200,000 to that number over the past eight days. The developers recently stated that the game has sold over 10 million copies. On September 16, the game reached 1,348,374 concurrent users, which allowed it to surpass Valve's DOTA 2, the previous record holder at 1,291,328 set during March 2016.

He said the USA should re-impose sanctions on Myanmar that were in place before it made transition from military to civilian rule. Modi took sides on Suu Kyi's government and declared all out support to Myanmar.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has seen a meteoric rise in player count ever since it was launched in March, and six months later, the shooter has now beaten DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in terms of popularity on Steam.

With further updates planned before the game reaches full release later this year, PUBG's record numbers should continue to grow for the foreseeable future.

With success also comes new legions of players and some do not with good intentions because they seek to win illegitimately by cheating and trying to alter the game through external programs.
