PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has just been on Xbox One consoles as part of the Xbox Game Preview app for under a month, but it already comes with a ballooning player base.
That’s remarkable numbers for any game, let alone one that remains in the trailer app.
We reported last month that PUBG had reached more than one million players over the initial 48 hours after it was published on Xbox One. Clearly, that momentum carried through the remainder of the year as it reached three million players in an only 19 days.
What might make these amounts most remarkable however is that the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds continues to be rather unoptimized. Regardless of the bugs, lag, and feel pop-in problems that have often occurred for several consumers, the game’s community has continued to increase in size. This’s something you don’t typically find with a game that is plagued with all these faults out of the gate.
Of course, PUBG Corp has continued to release new upgrades to your game which are ongoing to improve the stability and general functionality.
At this point, not one of the amounts associated with PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds ought to surprise anyone. It was readily 2017’s most talked game and that hype really much carried on to its release onto Xbox One. Since PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds proceeds to be optimized on Microsoft’s console, it’ll be interesting to determine whether the player base continues to grow alongside it.
