The PC version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is already on its way to crack every record it can and put Dota 2 to shame, but in the meantime, the Xbox One version is making headway of its own. According to Xbox's own news site, the game has reached three million players, which it achieved before the end of 2017. Below is a quote from the article, but on the surface, that's an impressive number that puts the multiplayer battle royale title in the same league as Halo and Gears Of War for player counts happening at launch. An impressive feat, to say the least, and they've still got plenty of time to gain more.
Since PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) launched on Xbox One through the Xbox Game Preview program, it's been awesome to see the excitement and passion on display from the Xbox community. Whether you're streaming in the HypeZone on Mixer or battling for a chicken dinner with your squad, players on Xbox are helping build and improve the game on console. 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!
