Amazon Games’ New World Becomes #1 Most Played Game On Steam

New World dominates Steam with almost 700,000 concurrent players.

In 2016, Amazon Game Studios announced a new MMORPG that was initially scheduled to release in May 2020. After many delays due to COVID-19, the game has finally been released today. During its closed beta, the game received interest from many players, with almost 200,000 concurrent players on Steam. With the release, that number has increased even more now.

In only a few hours since release, the game reached 500,000 concurrent players on Steam and continues to increase with time. According to SteamDB, New World is now at nearly 700,000 active players, which is its current maximum. However, it doesn’t seem to be decreasing anytime soon.

Currently, the game is the #1 most played game on Steam in terms of concurrent players, overthrowing CS:GO and DOTA 2. Of course, these are some massive numbers for a game that hasn’t even been out for an entire day yet. Amazon Games hasn’t released many games, so this is certainly a huge achievement for the company.

As of right now, New World only has servers in North America and Europe. As a result, these record-breaking numbers of concurrent players have started to cause a few connectivity issues, which is to be expected. However, Amazon Games is trying to resolve these issues.

Not many games receive such an overwhelmingly positive response upon release. However, New World has certainly amazed the entire community by topping the charts on Steam, which is also the only storefront that game is available on, besides the Amazon website itself. It’s safe to say that, despite all the delays, New World has definitely succeeded.
