Palworld continues to grow despite being in the early access stage. Pocketpair had also announced that it had sold over 3 million copies of Palworld within two days of release. Note that the numbers on Steam don’t represent the total number of users playing Palworld on PC, as the game is also available to play on Xbox Game Pass for free, and the active player count there isn’t available.
