Dota Auto Chess Is The Fourth Most Popular Game On Steam, Reaches Over Four Million Players

Dota Auto Chess, a custom game inside Dota 2, continues experiencing enormous success, garnering a playerbase much larger than most games on Steam.

The game recently surpassed a brand-new milestone: 300,000 concurrent players, and is currently sitting at over four million total subscribers. This is a sign of the mod's continued growth, as only last month the game was sitting at over 100,000 concurrents and nearly 700,000 subscribers, according to esports outfit Team Secret's director of operations Matthew Bailey.

This makes the mod itself one of the most popular games on Steam. If you were to rank Auto Chess on Steam's official player statistics rankings across all games on Steam, it would place fourth, putting it ahead of the Steam playerbases for Rainbow Six Siege (the game is also available on consoles and through Ubisoft's own store on PC) and Grand Theft Auto V (which is also available outside of Steam through the Rockstar Social Club store), and behind Steam..

Though the company has pushed many parts of Destiny 2 to be more like Destiny, this won't be the case for Trials. “Both Destiny and the online PvP scene have evolved since 2015, so we don’t believe that bringing back the 2015 version of Trials of Osiris would accomplish what our goals a..
