As you can see from the graph above, PUBG's playerbase is rising at a rapid rate. It took 4 months for Battlegrounds to reach 500K conconcurrent players and build an established playerbase. In the previous 3 months we've seen the playerbase not only double, but triple to 1.5K concurrent players. Twitch viewers has maintained a steady viewing audience of 150-200K throughout PUBG's reign, peaking at 450K during the Gamescom Invitational 2017.

 

During a recent Reddit AMA, Mr. PlayerUnknown stated that he would "love" to add a single-player campaign to PUBG. Greene said: "I would love to add a single-player campaign to the game," he said. "I think the island we have could be a great location for an interesting story, but unfortunately we just don't have the time or the resources for this at the moment!"
