Player Unknown’s Battleground keeps on breaking records on Steam and has now dethroned Valve’s most popular game, DOTA 2 on the list of top games with highest concurrent players.
Player Unkown’s Battleground peaked 1,349,584 this weekend and it’s a step up from DOTA 2’s 1,291,328 peak players which they set last March 2016. With the continuing success of PUBG, releasing the game on Microsoft’s console could help close the gap between Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PS4. In fact, Microsoft is already working with Bluehole to port PUBG on their console and it will be available on Xbox Game Preview program later this year.
The developer of the game, Bluehole, previously announced that the game will also be available on PlayStation 4 but there were unconfirmed reports that PUBG might not launch on Sony’s console. This news came as the developer of PUBG confirmed that they are not planning to increase the price of the game on any platform.
“We don’t have a plan to increase at the moment,” he said. “That could change, but from my understanding, and from what we’ve talked about internally, we want to keep the same price.
We’re happy. $30 is a good price for what you’re getting, and this is a game that could last for five or ten years. You’re buying into something bigger than just a year-long game.”
With the latest major patch on Player Unknown’s Battleground, we’re expecting to see more players getting into the game and join the battle royale before the game’s official launch. For those gamers that are not yet familiar with Player Unknown’s Battleground, it’s a battle-royale game where 100 players are sent to a remote island to look for weapons and armors. The battleground shrinks as the time goes on so players will be forced to engage other players and fight until you become the sole winner.
