On the heels of selling over 20 million copies to date, the last-man-standing shooter won't stop smashing barriers.
Today PUBG finally exited early access and embraced the harsh realities of a bona-fide release on PC (the Xbox port is still in early access and based on the performance issues it's likely to stay there for quite some time). While it's quite impressive that PUBG Corp was able to keep their promise to launch the game in 2017 alone, the game's official launch is accompanied by yet another milestone: the game has reached 30 million players worldwide across all platforms.
With sales numbers like these as well as this strong playerbase, it's only a matter of time before big publishers step into the arena. Epic Games jumped in with Fortnite, and rumor has it Valve is jumping in with a battle royale gametype for CS:GO, but nothing's been confirmed just yet. We can only imagine how much cash Bluehole will make from PUBG's in-game cosmetic microtransactions, which were planned to go live in the final release.
