PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hits 3 million players on Xbox One

The Game Preview edition that’s currently available on Xbox One has had a rather, well, broken launch and has seen a variety of updates in that time to ensure a smoother game play experience, and whilst it isn’t there yet by any stretch of the imagination – Rossko has been playing it and got killed by a dude hiding with the confines of a tree. True story -, it’s good to see the game is getting some great attention.

Still, when PUBG is smashing records all over Steam – nearly 25 million players, no less – the Xbox One version has amassed three million players. Madness. Not only that, on the first day of release over a million players jumped on the game.

Super Lucky’s Tale not cutting the mustard then? Shame. Still, with PUBG close to being what we could all possibly recognise as a videogame on Xbox One, we don’t see many other Xbox games getting a look in with those kinds of numbers.
