Mobile version of the popular Battle Royale refuse to slow down

Six month after mobile version of the popular Battle Royale game PUBG saw the world, the game devs went to Twitter to show their gratitude to the players. And there’s a reason for that, considering PUBG mobile powered through another milestone – the game accrued 20 million active players a day. 

PC version of PUBG first appeared on Steam a year and a half ago (March 2017) as an Early Access project. Official release was on December 20 and since then the game got versions for Xbox One and smartphones on iOs and Android (greatly supported by the Chinese holding giant Tencent Games). 

Apart from the huge success of PUBG Mobile, desktop version recently demonstrated its capability to hold good online as well. On September 9, the game set a Steam record: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds had the biggest number of active daily users for 365 days straight. Just imagine it, for entire year more than a million users logged in to the popular battle royale on a daily basis. However, the next day after setting the record, number of online users dropped to 960,000.
