Amazon’s New World MMO hits 734k concurrent players

And a peak viewership of 985,738 people on Twitch

Amazon’s long-awaited MMO PC Game New World is off to a strong start on Steam.

According to data from SteamDB, the title reached a peak of 734,496 concurrent users at 18:00 BST yesterday (Wednesday, September 29th).

At the time of writing, the MMO also apparently has the second-highest concurrent player figure of any game on Steam, coming in second to Valve’s own Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, but ahead of Dota 2, as well as battle royale hits Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, Apex Legends and Naraka: Bladepoint.

Since launch, New World has also seen a peak viewership of 985,738 people on Twitch.

“It has been an unbelievable 24 hours and the support for New World that New World has seen so far has been incredible,” the game’s official Twitter account said following the MMO’s release.

New World finally released on September 28th following a few delays. The VP of Amazon Games Christoph Hartmann recently said that he wanted to make sure that the game was ready for release and that the developer was in it for the long haul with its projects.
