PUBG has sold over 50 million copies around the world, and, to celebrate, the developer is offering a discount.

Ryan Rigley released a post of Steam that detailed the game’s mammoth stats, which also include the mobile version of the game:

“There are now over 400 million registered players worldwide. Over 87 million people play PUBG every day across all our platforms.


We’re genuinely humbled by PUBG’s ongoing success and growth, and we’re incredibly optimistic about the game’s future. We’re going to keep working on new content and improvements for all versions of the game. We know there’s still so much we can do to make PUBG a better game for our players.”

Rigley then went on to announce the discount, which is in effect right now:


“To celebrate these new milestones, we’re putting PUBG on sale on Steam from June 19th (later today!) through July 5th. If you want to pick up the game for the first time or gift it to a friend, you’ll be able to grab it for just $19.99 (33.33% off the normal price).”

PUBG is currently on sale via Steam and the Humble Store, with the added bonus that if you pick it up from the latter, you’ll raise money for charity, too. (We may also receive a small commission for purchases made from online stores.)

In other Battlegrounds news, the game’s third map, Sanhok, is out on June 22nd.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
