Baldur’s Gate 3 Sets New Record with Over 60,000 Concurrent Players

Baldur's Gate 3 has continued to gain traction and break records since its launch. Despite review bombing attempts, the game's popularity remains strong.

The community of Baldur's Gate 3 players recently set their sights on surpassing 1 million concurrent players, and while they haven't quite reached that milestone yet, they did break their previous record this weekend. The game's peak player count currently sits at 875,343, surpassing the previous record of 814,666.

Although Baldur's Gate 3 is currently in 9th place on Steam's top 10 concurrent players chart, it is now just under 4,000 players away from overtaking Hogwarts Legacy for the 8th spot. The community on Reddit is enthusiastic about this achievement and encourages each other to aim higher, even mentioning games like Elden Ring as potential targets for surpassing in player count.

Players in the Reddit thread have praised Larian Studios for their efforts with Baldur's Gate 3, expressing that the game's success is well deserved. They also acknowledge the significance of a Dungeons & Dragons game rivaling a popular franchise like Harry Potter in terms of player numbers.

With highly anticipated games like Starfield, Armored Core 6, and Spider-Man 2 still to come in 2023, the competition for Game of the Year is tough. However, Baldur's Gate 3's positive reception and the push for 1 million concurrent players by its community make it a strong contender for the coveted title.

Baldur's Gate 3 players are preparing for another weekend of pushing the game further up the concurrent player charts. The game has already become a personal favorite for many players, and its success shows no signs of slowing down.
