It’s pretty safe to say that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has blown up. The game is everywhere and it has taken the Steam community by storm. That said, the game’s numbers are still going up, with no signs of stopping or slowing.
According to Steamspy, PUBG has sold over 7 million copies. The game isn’t even finished yet, as it released in March as an early access program. With Battlegrounds charging half the usual price of AAA game titles, $30, that brings the game’s revenue to the ballpark of about $210 million. As of August 17th, the game is still on top of Steam’s Top Sellers chart.
To further impress, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds peak of concurrent players sits at 620,612 and only passed 500,000 earlier this month. The game managed to edge out CS:GO in concurrent peak, but still lags a fair bit behind Valve’s free and insanely popular MOBA title, DOTA 2.
The developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Bluehole also recently changed up the schedule for patch deployment to their game. While some fans are weary of this, Bluehole did also recently release a patch that fixed several bugs, even though it didn’t add any major features that players have been clamoring for. The new fixes include a client crash bug, some graphics and reconnect bugs, as well as a glitch that could force players out of vehicles when they press “F” to cancel using an energy drink.
Bluehole has promised many more patches and updates and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will likely launch on the PS4 and Xbox One near the close of 2017. Discuss the impressive Battlegrounds sales with our community!
