It was barely 24 hours ago that I wrote that Fortnite had reached a new record 8.3 million concurrent players across all platforms, so I began digging into the playerbase of PUBG and discovered it's low and losing double-digit percentages every month.

PUBG player base falls under 1 million concurrent on Steam |

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds reached its peak of 3.2 million players back in January 2018, and has since lost close to 100,000 players per month since. In June it dipped below 2 million concurrent players on Steam to just 1.75 million players, and dipped to 1 million last month. In the last 30 days, PUBG has only hit a peak of 965,507 players... seeing Fortnite with 7.4 million more concurrent players.
