Farming Simulator 22 Hits Insane Concurrent Player Count On Steam

As spotted by a user on ResetEra, on Monday, November 22nd, the day of the game’s release, Farming Simulator 22 soared to over 105,000 concurrent players on Steam alone.

That impressive number put it at number five on the ‘top games by current player count’ list on Steam, beating out Apex Legends, PUBG: Battlegrounds, Rust, Halo Infinite, and plenty more. Of course, it still had some way to beat out Dota 2 and CS: GO, which peaked at over 600,000 and 770,000 players respectively.

The eagle-eyed ResetEra users also noted that the peak player count for Farming Simulator 22 was almost as much as all 3 previous entries combined. Farming Simulator 19 previously peaked at almost 60,000 players back in 2018.

Unfortunately, the high number of players didn’t last long. At the time of writing (November 25th), Farming Simulator 22 is hovering around the fifteenth position in terms of top games by player count, peaking at 96,000 players. Although it has dropped from the number 5 position, it’s still beating out the likes of Battlefield 2042 which was one of the most anticipated titles of the year, and only peaked at 54,000 players.

Farming Simulator 22 is available now for PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Google Stadia.
