The mobile version of the Playerunknown battlefield, PUBG Mobile, has reached 200 million players, According to company sources, they secured The Verge this week. In addition, the number of daily active users is around thirty million.
These numbers are especially interesting because the latest known data from Fortnite Battle Royale – PUBG's main competitor for the royal battle– they also targeted the two hundred million users.
Although this number goes back to the end of November, it does not seem likely that it has increased significantly in those weeks.
The figures of The Verge, as they explain, would exclude data from China – Where PUBG is wildly popular, but may face its ban – and copies sold to PCs or video game consoles, which the same medium puts above 50 million.
PUBG was the great phenomenon in the world of online multiplayer video games of 2017 and popularized the genre royal battle. Although with the departure of Fortnite – it offered a more casual design and is free-to-play– PUBG data fell and hit its worst data in several months in terms of active users on Steam last September, developers continued to bet on the game and adding new improvements.
The latest addition to the PlayStation 4 was the departure of the Vikendi map, which appeared simultaneously on PC servers and mobile devices – iOS and Android.
Either way, the good numbers that PUBG Mobile does with the title are alive and fuels competition for the royal battle, the genre of fashion and the great phenomenon in the world of game the last two years. To the already mentioned PUBG and Fortnite, other great sagas were added like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike or, in the next months, Battlefield.
