Dying Light 2 Has A Huge Start On Steam, Reaches 169,000 Concurrent Players
Techland’s sequel is off to a great start.
Techland’s new open-world zombie game Dying Light 2 Stay Human is out now, and it is performing very well on PC based on player numbers.On Steam, where player data is publicly available, we can see that Dying Light 2 has reached a peak concurrent player record of 169,287 on launch day.
That made it Steam’s fifth biggest game based on player numbers, only trailing the free-to-play games Apex Legends, PUBG, Dota 2, and CS: Go.For comparison, the original 2015 Dying Light had an all-time peak concurrent record of 45,876 , so the sequel is far outpacing it already ( via VGC ).
Dying Light 2 is also available on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, but player data for those platforms is not available.A Nintendo Switch version of the game is coming later this year.
