Yes, you read that correctly. Not even six months after its initial release via Early Access on Steam, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has sold over 10 million copies. This astounding figure has been confirmed on Twitter by Brendan Greene, Creative Director of the game.
10 MILLION SOLD! Never did I think we would reach such a number! Thank you all for your continuing support of the @PUBATTLEGROUNDS team <3

This is incredible success, as this game appears to be breaking another million in sales on a regular basis at this point. Additionally, it recently was confirmed to have the highest peak player count of any non-Valve game on Steam. While there is no solid release date yet, PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is coming to Xbox One sometime this holiday. Time will tell however, it certainly seems likely that this success will carry over to the Xbox version. With support from Microsoft in developing the port, this could be a showcase game for the Xbox One X.
