Palworld currently lags behind Counter Strike 2 in concurrent players on Steam. However, this dynamic could shift, especially considering that Palworld is still in Early Access. With Pocketpair promising a slew of improvements and updates, including PvP and crossplay features, there's potential for Palworld to regain millions of concurrent players on Steam.
