Some games are truly generational and only come across once every few years. We obviously get a lot of good games every year but a few of them stand the test of time and stay relevant for years to come. One such game is the widely popular GTA V, which is probably the most popular game on Earth.
It is one of the highest-selling games of all time with almost 165 million copies sold, and this game is currently showing no sign of stopping at all, as sales just keep increasing. Recently, the game has reached another milestone on Steam, which proves that it has great legs.
GTA V has overtaken Elden Ring to become the #6 all-time most played game on Steam, according to SteamDB. Elden Ring has been one of the biggest games of the past few years. It has broken some long-held records and got critical acclaim that no one has seen before, and the sales of the game speak for themselves.
FromSoftware’s recent action role-playing game took the #6 all-time most played game spot on the Steam charts back in March. However, GTA V has finally overtaken the game for this spot. If there was any doubt about the bright future of GTA V, this really puts it all out.
Rockstar Games’ action-adventure game from over 7 years ago has been selling like hotcakes across all platforms and this new feat tells that this sensation will continue. Players will always be in line to play this masterpiece of a video game.
The all-time concurrent player peaks of both of these games are also very different. Elden Ring has an astounding all-time concurrent player peak of 953,426 players, while GTA V is far behind with an all-time concurrent player peak of 364,548 players. However, that does not seem to matter, as Elden Ring has been losing concurrent players significantly recently.
Beating one of the most popular contemporary games on the Steam storefront is just another example of GTA V’s longevity. It is showing no signs of dying any time soon and with the content that Rockstar Games has planned for it, it’s obvious why.
