Many Raiders of the Lost Ark

A tweet from SteamDB notes that yesterday's launch of Lost Ark has already attracted a higher peak player count than New World has since that competing MMORPG launched in September. It's currently number one on SteamDB's Most Played Games on Steam List, and has the fifth highest peak player count recorded since the site began tracking such things. The only games that have ever hosted more concurrent players on Steam are Cyberpunk 2077, Dota 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and (with more than double the next closest competitor) PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. Here's word:
Lost Ark peaked at 984,111 concurrent players on Steam once release servers went online, already beating New World's peak which was 913,634.
