PUBG 10 million sales

We love PUBG, we really do. But honestly? It feels like we’re writing the same bloody news story over and over again.

Another day, another honking great sales or concurrent player milestone for Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene’s massive smash hit battle royale shooter.

Tell you what. Can we take all that exposition people normally bung into the start of a news article as read? We’ve done this news story before, you’ve read it before, so we’ll assume everyone knows. PUBG, short for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds; global phenomenon; biggest game on the planet; unstoppable, record-breaking figures; actually a really good game; not even out of Early Access yet.

Cool? Cool.

OK, the news: over the weekend, Brendan has shared via Twitter that PUBG has surpassed 20 million sales:

There we are. That’s the news.

In conclusion, the tines all go up so I'm happy

Same time next week for the next big PUBG milestone? Cool, we’ll see you there.

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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! 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.
