The game released on March 23, 2017, but most of the game's sudden growth has come in the last month.

The news comes via PLAYERUNKNOWN's (aka Brendan Green, the game's creative director) Twitter account, where it was revealed that today the battle-royale shooter hit 1,342,857 players, healthily beating out Dota 2's previous record-holding figure of 1,295,114.

Once Battlegrounds is finally out, you can bet its player base will only increase, meaning the game likely isn't finished setting records for concurrent users. In reality, what actually happened was that the game sold over 2 million copies in around five weeks, a ridiculous target that not even Greene himself anticipated.

Bluehole had a very different prediction than Brendan Greene though. "A lot of the [internal team], they really couldn't believe it", Green said. And that's where you will have a great chance to live in one "giant" map, along with hundreds of other players where, as you know, the victor will be the last survivor.
