The 20 most played games on PC in 2021

Following the trends and specialized blogs, it might seem that Fortnite is the undisputed number one, but it is not the case and this may surprise, also because the number one game in the world has always been the same for several years and shows no sign of giving up. In this updated article we are going to discover the complete ranking of the most played games in the world on PC, those with more players, in 2021.

The estimate was made by counting that more than half a billion people around the world play video games every day, with about three billion hours of gameplay per week. Thanks to gaming platforms like Steam, PCs are a widely used gaming platform, less than smartphones, but practically on par with gaming consoles like Playstation and XBox.

Among the main companies that develop and sell video games for PC, the number one is Electronic Arts present in the ranking with several titles, including “Apex Legends”, one of the most played shooter games that has surpassed even Fortnite.

The most played indie game (i.e. created by independent developers from large corporations) is Minecraft, which is now owned by Microsoft, while the most played game in the world is the surprising Among Us.

The longest running series of PC games is still Call Of Duty, with new episodes and war campaigns that can also be played in multiplayer.

GTA 5 is instead the game, among those present in the ranking, more expensive in its development, practically like a Hollywood Colossal, costing as much as 265 million dollars (and also the one that has grossed the most)

From the ranking published by New Zoo, we then see the most played games in the world on PC, including both free and paid games, almost all online multiplayer, of all genres.

1) Among Us, viral game of 2020 and still very played also on PC in 2021, with players from all over the world to compete to find the imposter.

2) Word Crossy is a word guessing puzzle game, to not be confused with CodyCross. It is just as fun but a bit easier to solve and more child friendly as it has easier words.

3) Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, a game that simulates the cold war, with also multiplayer campaigns.

4) Call of Duty: Warzone, the free multiplayer version of the most popular first person shooter ever.

7) Fortnite, the game that has been talked about the most in the last two years, dropped in this ranking, but still very played, especially because it is free and terribly addicting. As a genre, Battle Royale is a third-person shooter with 100 players together, where only one survives each match.
