Battlefield 5 is a first-person shooting game published by Electronic Arts. It is the 11th installment in the series. Even though the game was released on 20 November 2018 and is four years old, it seems like Battlefield fans are still not over the game.

The game has reached over 42k peak concurrent players, and the numbers are increasing every minute. Moreover, the game is currently in the top 11 best-selling games on Steam.

As shown above, the game currently has 42,284 concurrent players. Though these are not the all-time peak concurrent players in the game, the current stats could close the gap soon. Recently, Battlefield 1 crossed 40k peak concurrent players, which is huge. 

Moreover, the game is currently 11th on Steam’s top best-selling games. Though the list is mainly taken over by the latest games like COD Modern Warfare 2, it is still huge for the Battlefield franchise to make it into the top sellers’ list again.

Furthermore, Battlefield 2042 is the latest installment in the Battlefield series and has a concurrent of just 15k players. Almost 3x less than Battlefield 5. Though the game was released last year, the fans seem not to enjoy the latest installment in the franchise. The game had bugs and missing content on its release and has struggled since then.

Battlefield 5 got off to a rocky start at launch. The game was surrounded by controversy for its take on World War 2 and offered a buggy experience in many ways. However, Dice continued to work on the game, and Battlefield 5 today is significantly better than its state at launch. 

Furthermore, Battlefield 5 has a lot of content to make the game interesting for fans. The game has various maps set in World War 2 and numerous guns. The title saw many updates post-launch, and fans grew to enjoy the game over time. Therefore, it makes sense that Battlefield 5 continues to see a healthy player base.
