Whether it’s the new maps or the new hats, Team Fortress 2 players are swarming to the game right now, as the shooter just hit a new peak player number on Steam in the wake of the update. In the past 24 hours, the game reached 253,997 players on the platform. Team Fortress 2 launched in 2007 and still has a dedicated community playing it, even if there has been a bit of a tug-of-war between them and Valve to see the game supported in recent years. Though Team Fortress is considered a precursor to the hero shooter craze and games like Overwatch, clearly the game still has legs, even as the shooter genre grows more and more crowded with each passing year.
