PUBG has sold over 70m copies

Battle royale progenitor Playerunknown's Battlegrounds has now sold more than 70m copies.

That's according to GamesIndustry and developer PUBG Corp, which reports that it has hit this sales milestone across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

There's no breakdown between platforms for PUBG sales, but PC still likely takes up the biggest slice of the pie thanks to Playerunknown's Battlegrounds launching on Steam back in March 2017 and the battle royale hit being in Xbox Game Pass.

PUBG had sold 60m copies at the end of 2019, meaning it has managed another 10m during 2020 to date.

Sales for Playerunknown's Battlegrounds have slowed down since its monumental first year in the wild, but the title is clearly still a strong seller. The title is still hitting peaks of around half a million concurrent players on Steam now. That's a decline on the whopping three million simultaneous users it boasted back in January 2018, but 500,000 users at once is still impressive.
