PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has been nothing short of a massive success on PC and more recently on Xbox One. It’s not showing signs of slowing down anytime soon, as Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing for Xbox, has confirmed on Xbox Wire that PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has over 3 million Xbox One players.
Aaron Greenberg stated that “Today, PUBG Corp. and Xbox are excited to share that through the end of 2017 the PUBG community on Xbox One has already grown to over three million players. Thank you for your incredible support!”
He continued to affirm the team’s support for the game by saying continued “The team at PUBG Corp. is determined to continue to improve the in-game experience for PUBG’s growing and active community and have already released four updates since the game’s launch in Xbox Game Preview on December 12. You’ll continue to see regular updates roll out for PUBG on Xbox One such as this week’s addition of first-person support for solo, duo, and squads gameplay and the team is just getting started, with more updates planned that include additional game optimization and the new Miramar map – keep up-to-date by visiting PUBG Corp’s official forums.”
These numbers are indicative of an incredible success, one that I’m sure PUBG. Corp and Xbox are both very pleased with. The fact that these numbers only go through the end of 2017, and therefore don’t include any sales over the past eleven days, is nothing short of incredible. If they can keep these patches and new content updates rolling out, there’s no reason this success shouldn’t continue.
