10 GTA V
Somehow, seven years after its launch on the previous console generation, Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto V is still among the world’s most-played games. It’s a seemingly unstoppable force that regularly finds itself among the top 10 best-selling games each month.
Within the past six months its seen peak concurrent players exceeding 260,000, which is just incredible considering its not a competitive PvP experience, which we’d typically associate with high concurrent player numbers.
9. Destiny 2
destiny 2 concurrent numbers over the past twelve months are actually far higher than what we’ve got listed here if you were to count its performance across consoles as well as PC.
Particularly so, given that Bungie now has the final say on the direction of content moving forward now that it has split with Activision. Free from the shackles of its publishing overlords, there’s a renewed sense of enthusiasm among the community and we get the sense that Bungie is determined to deliver on its vision to realize a plethora of content for Destiny 2 moving forward.
8. counter strike
Counter-Strike: GO’s spot on this list slightly betrays just how impressive its popularity is. While over 750,000 concurrent players is nothing to sniff at, it’s the fact that CS: GO has been cranking out this sort of performance for eight years.
DOTA 2, the sequel to the genre’s founding father, still eclipses most of the competition. Over the past 12 months, it’s regularly nearing a million concurrent players, and sometimes exceeding that total, despite having been around for nearly a decade.
Most notably, of course, it was copied by and then superseded by Epic Games’ Fortnite. PUBG’s premium model and its tardiness in arriving on consoles saw it fall behind rather quickly once Fortnite began gathering steam.
But while PUBG may no longer rule the battle royale roost, it still offers a tactical military-sim experience that isn’t matched by other games in the genre. This, and the fact that its mobile version is also extremely popular (numbers not included in above stat), should see PUBG’s community soldier on throughout 2020.
5. Apex legend
Respawn’s Apex Legends stealth dropped out of nowhere and then proceeded to take the battle royale genre by storm. It proved the perfect recipe of compelling gameplay, AAA production quality, and a free-to-play business model that saw it succeed in temporarily dethroning Fortnite and PUBG as most-played and most-watched multiplayer games.
Minecraft is a juggernaut that just keeps on steamrolling, but we’ll acknowledge that we’re slightly cheating with our listed stat here.
Technically, our data should place Minecraft below Apex Legends. The thing is, while we only have data from 2015, we know for certain that Minecraft has only increased its player base exponentially over the past four years. You only have to look at its monthly active users (MAU) for proof.
It’s likely that up until only fairly recently the majority of our readers wouldn’t have heard of one of the world’s most-played video games. Crossfire, a Counter-Strike clone, is an absolute beast over in Korea, and it’s set to make its mark over in the west soon.
2. League of legend
Earlier in this list, we cited DOTA 2’s continued popularity as proof that the MOBA genre is far from dead, but League of Legends’ numbers completely blow those out of the water. According to Riot Games, almost each and every single day, League of Legends is played by around 8 million people.
love or hate fortnite,it is surely has to go down as the most played video game ever made,fornite is constantly shifting entity,remolding itself with different features and trends.
