PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has achieved yet another milestone by officially marking 20 million copies sold since it entered early access on Steam more than seven months ago.
I was just a month back when the popular battle royale game was said to have sold more than 15 million copies, and another month before that when it registered 10 million copies sold. The pattern clearly dictates that PUBG is shifting 5 million copies on average every single month, which is simply astonishing.
Posting on Twitter, creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene confirmed the new sales figure and acknowledged the frustration of players for having to face technical and other related issues on a regular basis.
“I know a lot of you are frustrated by issues w/ the game but the team is working hard to deliver a truly great Battle Royale experience for everyone,” Greene said. “Bear with us, change is coming!”
PUBG is currently paving way to escape early access on Steam, as well as arrive for Xbox One for the first time, next month. It goes without saying that the game is going to generate increased sales during the holiday period.
Those debating about its retention capabilities should note that PUBG has been maintaining more than 2 million concurrent players on Steam nearly every single day for the past four weeks.
