PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hits 30 Million Sales, Active Users Declining

PUBG hit 30m in sales this week, but it is churning hard.

In fact, the staggering growth of PUBG is likely the reason for its sudden decrease in concurrent players, as it's impossible to maintain at its current rate. While the studio has undergone numerous purges of said cheaters, nefarious players continue to crop up daily, and it's becoming an issue for PC players who've supported the title since the very beginning, even when PUBG officially released without fixing its biggest issues. He proposes that cheaters are to blame for the drop in active players and that the developers have not been taking them seriously enough.

All told, PUBG has shipped more than 30 million copies on Steam with another 4 million sold on Xbox One. Staring on February 18 and ending on February 24, those that purchase an Xbox One X will also receive a free copy of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. The game's peak concurrent player count on the PC is more than 3 million. This is the most significant drop in players since the game's launch, and has been dropping off since January. As of this writing, the current player count is 529,997, with the peak in the past 24 hours being almost 1.7 million. For starters, the game has been rolling in one form or another for over a year at this point.


PUBG is a multiplayer online battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, which is a subsidiary of Korean publisher Bluehole.

But where are all these players going? In other words, folks may have moved on to other pastures for the time being.

There are also two mobile versions of PUBG, which have so far only been released in China.
