PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a literal and figurative juggernaut. Since launching on Steam in March, over 10M copies have been sold. In addition, it has set records for most concurrent users as well as moved to the #1 spot on the Steam charts.
PUBG has taken the gaming world by storm. In fact, its recent tournament further showed its astonishing popularity.
During the four-day PUBG Invitational, 92 players from 19 different countries took part in four different game modes. The matches were sent out across nine different streaming platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and more. The first day saw over a half-million viewers watching at the same time on Twitch as well as 5.6M on PandaTV during the first day.
“It is amazing and gratifying to see the love and support the passionate fans have shown the game,” said Chang Han Kim, Executive Producer. “Watching the PUBG Invitational is a proof of the popularity of the game. Our team is working hard to bring a solid experience for full launch later this year.”
