Based on data from SteamDB, Palworld has been able to amass a staggering 1,291,967 concurrent players as of early this morning. As a result of this achievement, Palworld has become the second-highest concurrently played game in history on Steam when taking into account only paid titles. As of this moment, Palworld is boasting a higher concurrent player base than the likes of Counter-Strike 2 and DOTA 2, both of which are often the ever-present most-played titles on Steam.
"We can't believe it! Thank you so much to everyone. We really can not thank you enough," Pocketpair said on social media of this milestone. "The team is hard at work making Palworld even better as we speak!"

Essentially, Palworld's success has been downright baffling so far, even to the game's creators. Currently, Pocketpair reports that Palworld has now sold over 4 million units and is averaging 86,000 copies sold per hour. These raw sales also don't even take into account that the game is also accessible via Xbox Game Pass for those on console and PC. As a result, there are potentially multiple millions of other players that are playing Palworld thanks to Game Pass, which aren't even accounted for when viewing the concurrent player totals on Steam. Even though 2024 has just begun, there's a good chance that no other game might find this same success throughout the remainder of the year. Palworld is out now for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
