PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds is proving to be a huge success following its launch on Steam Early Access.
Following its arrival on PC late March this year, the standalone Battle Royale title has already hit a pretty significant milestone, passing 10 million sales, according to developer Bluehole.
And PUBG isn’t just hitting it big with sales either, the multiplayer last man standing shooter managed to pass the dominant DOTA 2 last month, with a peak of 970,000 concurrent players clocked for August.
A runaway success, PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds has effectively now sold more units to date worldwide than some of 2017’s big hitters combined with Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Guerilla Games’ Horizon Zero Dawn selling roughly 4.4m and 3.3m respectively, passed by PUBG‘s 10 million, even before the games full release in 2018.
Whatsmore, PUBG‘s player base looks set to expand even further when the game arrives for Xbox One Game Preview as a console exclusive later in 2017.
