DayZ player count record on Steam is broken again

DayZ player count record on Steam is broken again

For the second time this year, DayZ broke the all-time record for player count on Steam, leading to a very healthy 2022 for the survival game — possibly DayZ’s most popular year since it launched nine years ago.

When DayZ officially launched on Steam in December 2013, it had a peak player count of 45,398 — a respectable number for a zombie game, but as SteamCharts shows, it steadily declined. However, DayZ saw a resurgence after releasing version 1.0 in late 2018, and it finally broke the release record with 52,751 players in January of this year.

Well, it’s now three months later and DayZ has had another spike in concurrent players. The record on Steam is now 58,523 players, which is certainly an impressive achievement. This comes after last week’s 1.17 update, which added some accessibility options like the ability to adjust sensitivity settings and alternative control methods.

The update also adds new weapons and crafting options, including the return of the ability to craft improvised spears. Developer Bohemia Interactive also kicked off DayZ’s Walpurgis Night event, which runs until May 9, essentially giving players the option to dress up as a witch with a burning broom.

Another historic peak @DayZ

Great work team 🥳🥳

Unfortunately, these player counts cannot be attributed to the launch of the Steam Deck, as currently, DayZ doesn’t work with Valve’s new system.
