PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds continues to gain traction, with the game passing over 7 million sales, a gigantic achievement for a game that isn't backed by a huge AAA studio or developer.


Bluehole now enjoy 617,000 concurrent gamers playing Battlegrounds on Steam, and with the price at just $29.99 the developer has pulled in a hefty $209 million since launching PUBG into Steam Early Access in April.

Better yet, PUBG is turning into a huge beast on Twitch... with Battlegrounds beating out League of Legends and the amount of Twitch hours streamed this week. The only game bigger on Twitch right now is Dota 2.
