Dying Light 2 Has Shambled Onto Steam’s 25 Most-Played Games of All Time by Concurrent Players


Dying Light 2 appears to be off to a strong start, as it has already shambled its way onto Steam’s top 25 most-played games of all time with a peak concurrent player count of 274,983.

According to SteamDB, Dying Light 2 – which has greatly outperformed the original Dying Light’s all-time peak of 45,876 players – has passed both KHOLAT and Halo Infinite to place 23rd on the list of Steam’s most-played games of all time by concurrent players, and it sits behind The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

For comparison, PUBG: Battlegrounds is holding strong onto the #1 spot with an all-time peak of 3,257,248 players. In a distant second sits Counter-Strike: Global Offensive with 1,308,963 players. Additionally, the original Dying Light had an all-time peak of 45,876.

In most cases, the launch of a game will see the highest concurrent player count. However, in the age of live-service games and expansions and more, sometimes games can find a second chance at moving up the list.

In our Dying Light 2 review, we said that it “is an ambitious zombie action adventure that’s packed with top-notch parkour, an awesome open world, and every painful bug in the book.”

We still have to wait to see how Dying Light 2 has done on consoles, but this is a promising beginning for the game that has already committed to at least five years of DLC.
