Dota 2 supplants Skyrim for the most concurrent players on Steam

Not bad for a beta

Dota 2 has claimed the mantle of the most played game of all time on Steam.

The previous record-holder was Skyrim shortly after it's release in November 2011 with 287,411 concurrent players on Steam.

Dota 2, while still in beta, has seen player numbers on the rise slowly since it launched, again back in November of 2011 until around 4am GMT on Sunday morning when it peaked at 297,010 concurrent players toppling Skyrim from its throne.

Skyrim's peak for this month was a bit more conservative at 44,037 concurrent players.
