PUBG

At least once every generation, there is one game that introduces a defining feature that will effectively influence the way the industry going forward. There were a few games this generation to do that, but probably one of the first was PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds). The game was the first fully fleshed out battle royale shooter we saw, a new system that’s been adapted by so many other developers at this point, it’s staggering. And well, one of the first and now the best selling.

As reported by GamesIndustry, the game has now surpassed 70 millions units sold. This will also make it the best selling game that launched this generation (while sales-wise it’s been surpassed this gen by Grand Theft Auto 5, that game launched last gen). It is worth nothing here that the game is available on Xbox Game Pass and was a giveaway for those who signed up for Google Stadia Pro. It’s unclear if those numbers are in any way factored in here, but even if they are, we’re still looking at incredible numbers.

The game originally launched on PC, and then slowly made its way to consoles with the Xbox One and then PS4, until eventually getting mobile counterparts. It’s most recently been available on Google Stadia, and remains available via all of those platforms now.
