PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds redefined the online battle arena and blew everybody away with it’s amazing take on the genre. Recently, the game has now sold more than a whooping 4 million copies! This only reinforces the title of the game as breakout hit of the year and the developers are keen to keep support for the game intact with fresh, new content.
The game’s creative director, Brendan Greene, tweeted about the new milestone that the game had impressively achieved 4 million sales in just three months after release. The game was released in March and immediately received amazingly postive reviews from the PC audience and is now headed over to the Xbox One too (which we saw a bit of at E3 this year).
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds earned $11 million in revenue just after three days of it’s listing on Steam and it sold a million copies in less than three short weeks. Along with incredible sal stats, it has also become one of the most streamed games competing with the likes of Dota 2 and CS:GO.
The game is becoming more popular by the day amongst gamers and it is still in early access but the developers have confirmed that they plan to take PUBG out of early access approximately in 6 months. Greene said that they were able to do so because of their publisher, Bluepoint Inc, and the tremendous support shown by their fanbase.
“We’re going to do this in six months because we have a team that are committed – and they’re Korean, so there’s honour involved. The management trusts us. We’re somewhat autonomous: we still have to give them reports, but we do what we want to do. The launch was vindication of that. With our success now, it’s shown that it is possible.”
