PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds better known as PUBG is one of the biggest games on the planet and it continues to grow by providing high-level gaming technique and battleground. Before starting this new year, the Hunger Games-like shooter passed 3 million concurrent players on Steam and initially the marking was at 2 million at the start of October and increased 1 million concurrent users till September.

Brendan Greene, Game designer of PUBG has stated that according to Steam’s own public stats “he thinks the game could reach 100 million total players to achieve League of Legends-like success. Three million is more than four times the number of the second-most popular game on Steam, Dota 2, which had around 705,000 concurrent users until the end of 2017. Currently, it came down as the game had around 2.79 million concurrent players.”

After completing this new milestone, it comes on the heels of PUBG’s 1.0 release in the month of December. Some might have been waiting for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to leave Early Access before going in. Previously in the month of December, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds came to Xbox One through the Game Preview program. It was a quick hit there by selling 1 million copies in its first 48 hours. The game has sold almost 30 million copies at the price of $30, so that came up to $900 million in revenue.

In other news related to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, developer PUBG Corp. has recently mentioned it wants to bring the game to “every platform” so a PlayStation 4 release could be in the cards and everyone can play it. Moreover, the developer said it has spoken with Netflix and people in Hollywood about extending the game to new mediums to increase its users.
