PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still performing well, particularly on mobile.
Tencent and PUBG Corporation have announced that PUBG Mobile has now reached 100 million installs since its launch in March this year. The game has also recently hit a high of 14 million daily active users.
These are impressive numbers by any stretch, but even more so when you take into account that they exclude China, Japan, and Korea.
Vincent Wang, the General Manager of PUBG Mobile global publishing team, said in a press statement:
“We want to thank our committed development team at Lightspeed and Quantum Studios and especially thank the devoted players around the world that continue to inspire us with their passion and dedication. We will continue to set the bar for mobile gaming and look to deliver even more great contents to our players later this year.”
More sponsored content is certainly likely. The game recently feature in-game items based on action movie, Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
PUBG Mobile is available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
