PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has quickly become one of the most popular games ever released. Over 30 million people were playing the game on both PC and Xbox One before the end of 2017. The title was released for PC first, so PC gamers accounted for a big chunk of those numbers, but the game has become a hit on the Xbox One console as well. It’s quickly gaining millions of players on the Xbox One. In fact, PUBG now has over four million players on the Xbox One.
It was only ten days ago that the developer revealed that PUBG had three million players on Xbox One. So the game has added 100,000 players daily on average since then. That is pretty amazing to be honest.
Then again PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds sold over a million copies on the Xbox One within 48 hours of launch. It hit the three million mark in a month after being released. So I guess we should not be surprised.
PUBG Corp.’s lead community manager Sammie Kang confirmed the four million number. To celebrate, they are giving away 30,000 Battle Points to all Xbox One players who own the game and have created a character before January 31st. These 30,000 points will be applied to qualifying accounts after February 1st.
