The new milestone is a sizable increase over the 3 million concurrent players statistic Riot Games released for the popular MOBA back in October 2012.

Riot reports that League of Legends boasts 32 million monthly active players, with 12 million playing daily.

Valve's Dota 2, another popular MOBA, was revealed at the start of March to be digital distribution platform Steam's most played game of all time, exceeding 300,000 concurrent players.

Steam's previous record holder for concurrent players, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, managed 287,000 back in November 2011.
