The PUBG Xbox player count has quietly crept up. While Fortnite might be creating a bigger buzz, with its weekly content drops, and constant communication from the developers, Bluehole’s battle royale effort has clearly been selling well as an Xbox Game Preview title.
In a video spotted by Resetera user Theorry, which has been taken down before I could grab a screenshot (sigh), the 5 million player count milestone was celebrated by the Xbox and PUBG teams.
I’ll embed the video below, as it may go live again:
That’s 5 million people paying $30 for PUBG on Xbox, without the game really being finished. Pretty insane stuff!
