PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds blows past four million players on Xbox One

Accurate depiction of Xbox player base chasing PC

There is no denying that the battle royale sensation, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), is one of the most popular games in the market right now. By the end of last year, the game had crossed the 30 million player mark across both PC and Xbox One versions.

Although the PC version was responsible for a majority of that number, Xbox One players seem to be catching up quick. PUBG on the Xbox One managed to sell a million copies within 48 hours of its launch into the Xbox Game Preview program, and only a month later, that number had increased to three million.

And today, PUBG Corp.'s lead community manager Sammie Kang revealed on Xbox Wire that the Xbox One version now has over four million players, essentially gaining another million players in less than two weeks.

To celebrate hitting this milestone, the developer is giving away 30,000 Battle Points, the currency used to purchase cosmetic crates in-game, to every single Xbox One player who owns PUBG and has created a character before January 31, 12am PST. The Battle Points will be applied to the appropriate accounts after February 1.

PUBG is now on its sixth Xbox One update, which was pushed out earlier this week with gameplay improvements, numerous fixes for bugs and crashes, as well as general optimizations.

Even with the less than ideal state that the game is in, PUBG's popularity continues to skyrocket, and there aren't any signs of the ascent slowing down just yet.
