DOTA 2 Already Being Played More Than Skyrim

If they ever had any doubts about the potential for DOTA 2′s success, Valve can probably sit back and relax. New stats from Steam have just been released, and it’s apparent that people really, really like it. It’s the second most-played game on Steam, beating out Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. Which makes it officially a big deal. Taking a page from PC Gamer (h/t), here’s an image created using Steam graphs comparing recent player activity with DOTA2 compared to Skyrim and MW3.

What makes this impressive is that DOTA 2 is still in beta. It still has not received a final release date, and though officially it’s planned for some time later this year, it could still end up being pushed into 2013. Despite this, people love it. Expect it to be huge when it finally launches for real, making Billionaire gabe Newell even richer, and jowlier than ever.
