Often seen as the true founder of modern battle royale games, PUBG was released in 2017 before the genre gained widespread popularity. It might be one of the oldest Battle Royale games in recent years, but that doesn’t mean it’s dying. In fact, according to the game’s publisher, Crafton, the game is still making a lot of money.
In a financial report, it was recently revealed that PUBG has achieved an all-time high in profits, seeing explosive growth on PC primarily, with sales growing by 68% year-on-year. This means that it is still a powerhouse game in the language of numbers that the publisher has shared.
According to the site PCGamerThe game pushed the internal sales of cosmetic and other items, in addition to the revenues of the mobile version of PUBG Mobile, by a large percentage, generating an estimated income of about $ 400 million for Crafton in the first quarter of this year only.
It is reported that in January last year, PUBG was released for free, and it was later reported that 80,000 new players have been flocking to the platform every day since the decision was made to completely change the operating model. To this day, the game still boasts its own Steam record for the highest number of concurrent players ever, which isn’t a record it’s going to be easy to beat anytime soon.
So far, CS: GO is the closest competitor to PUBG in terms of numbers, but of course each game has its own audience. What are your best memories with the game, our followers, share with us below in the comments section.
