Tencent and PUBG Corp, announced that the Player Unknown Battle Battlegrounds game or commonly known as PUBG, has been downloaded more than 100 million times. PUBG was first launched internationally to the mobile version on Android and iOS in March 2018.
In addition, daily active players of PUBG in the world are claimed to penetrate up to 14 million players worldwide, except in China, Korea and Japan. “We want to thank our development team at Lightspeed and Quantum Studio and especially players around the world who continue to inspire us with their dedication and strong desire,” said General Manager of PUBG Mobile, Vincent Wang.
Furthermore, Wang said he would continue to improve mobile games and offer more content for his players. Although the download figures were hundreds of millions, the profits were not as much as competitor battle royale games, Fortnite.
Reported from Mobile Syrup, Saturday (08/18/2018), Fortnite made five times more revenue than PUBG Mobile, although it was downloaded five times less. These two popular mobile games are both expanding to attract more players.
Fortnite itself has just penetrated Android with the beta, whose debut was coupled with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in New York last August 9. Fortnite itself promises non-Samsung Android devices will get a mobile version this month.
While PUBG Corp., took the famous Hollywood production houses, pictures Paramount to release PUBG special edition of Mission Impossible: Fallout. Movie-themed content starring actor Tom Cruise will enliven PUBGs, such as avatars, and the effects of Mission Impossible music.
In addition, PUBG also provides opportunities for gamers who do not have heavyweight devices to play. Some time ago, PUBG Lite or the light version, was released for Android devices that only have 2 GB of RAM and runs on Android 5.1 or above.
