PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has only been around Xbox One consoles within this Xbox Game Preview program for under a month, but it has a ballooning player foundation.
This’s impressive numbers for almost any game, let alone one that remains in the trailer app.
We first reported last month that PUBG had reached more than one million players over the first 48 hours when it was released on Xbox One. Clearly, that momentum transported through the remainder of the year as it reached three million players in an only 19 days.
What might create these numbers most remarkable however is that the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been rather unoptimized. Regardless of the bugs, lag, and texture pop-in issues that have regularly occurred for many users, the game’s community has continued to increase in size. This’s something that you don’t normally find with a game that is plagued with so many flaws out of the gate.
Needless to say, PUBG Corp has continued to release new updates for the game which are ongoing to enhance the stability and overall functionality.
At this point, none of the amounts associated with PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds ought to surprise anybody. It was readily 2017’s discussed game which hype very much carried over to its launch on Xbox One. Since PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds proceeds to become more optimized on Microsoft’s console, it’ll be intriguing to see whether the player base continues to grow alongside it.
