This amazing success has set the game to break more records, and now it has set eyes on surpassing other popular titles. The game is currently at the 28th spot in the most played games on Steam, and despite leaving behind popular titles, it could soon surpass games like GTA and COD.

GTA 5 is currently 4 spots above HD2 with a 364k all-time concurrent player count, and Call of Duty has an all-time concurrent player count of 491k, which is not a big number given how dramatic the success of the game has been.

Some other titles that the game would like to surpass are Elden Ring, Cyberpunk 2077, Palworld, and PUBG: Battlegrounds, which are currently in the 7th, 6th, 2nd, and 1st spots, respectively. It will surely not be easy to beat these games, but if anyone could do it with the escalating success it has seen, it’s this; only time will tell.
