FPS Players

Has the record for number of players in a first-person game been broken? The team behind Just Cause 2 Multiplayer an unofficial mod of Just Cause 2 have been beta testing their server. It recently peaked at 1300 players online. Just Cause 2 is in a more open world than many FPSs, but the numbers of players supported are very impressive, even if chaos ensued (see the article!). These numbers have only been achieved on single servers for simple simulations before, or in simulations such as Donnybrook Quake. Perhaps a game company will now try to find a game that 1000 people can play together that is a little more structured!
