Resident Evil 8 has officially surpassed the player count of all the other games in the series by a wide margin.
The Steam stats page revealed that RE8 is currently among the top 10 most-played games on Steam. It secured itself a position as 9th on the list with over 100,000 concurrent players!
Resident Evil 8 is also the only single player game on the list with the rest of it being made up of titles such as CS: GO, Dota 2, PUBG, GTA5, and Rust.
