PUBG is known to be one of the biggest and best games on the market right now and we recently reported that it had broken one of Steam’s most impressive records.
The game had just become the first ever Steam title to exceed one million concurrent players each and every day for a full calendar year.
Unfortunately that’s come to an end just a couple of days after it beat the record, according to the figures from SteamDB.
The player-count officially dropped to 960,000 users online, marking the first time the count has dropped below one million daily users in over a year.
Although disheartening, the drop doesn’t exactly come as a surprise, as the PUBG users have seen a steady decline from the start of 2018.
On the 5th September 2018 it was a close call for PUBG, as it was just 5000 people away from dropping below a million players.
