Recent­ly, Rust has been doing rather well on Steam, break­ing yet anoth­er record. Accord­ing to Steam Charts, Rust had a per­vi­ous high of 134,483 con­cur­rent play­ers, but has now reached a height of 244,394 con­cur­rent play­ers. This surge is due most­ly to the increase in inter­est the game has received from stream­ers on Twitch.

As of right now, Rust is one of the most-viewed games on Twitch for the last cou­ple of weeks. As not­ed by PCGamesN, although this is quite an impres­sive num­ber for a sur­vival game, it does­n’t mea­sure up to the Steam’s oth­er top titles. This includes Dota 2, PUBG and the big champ — Counter Strike: Glob­al Offen­sive (all-time peak of 1.3 mil­lion). Still, this is a decent mile­stone for Rust, con­sid­er­ing their usu­al peak is around 50K to 100k.

As of this writ­ing, Rust is the top-streamed game on the Twitch plat­form, with around 450k view­ers, com­pared to the next-high­est, League of Leg­ends (322k). The devel­op­er behind Rust recent­ly revealed the game has made more than $1 mil­lion in one day twice in one week, and that the game might be com­ing to con­soles soon.
