PUBG on mobile hits 100 million downloads as Fortnite rolls to Android

PUBG Mobile

Indeed, developer PUBG Corp. and publisher Tencent recently revealed - via Gamasutra - that the mobile version of their smash hit title had surpassed the 100m mark in just four months after it was initially released back in March.

According to Tencent and PUBG Corp., PUBG's mobile edition was the "most-download mobile game" in 100-plus countries for its launch week. Moreover, PUBG Mobile also recently exceeded 14 million daily active users (DAU). Not too shabby indeed.

"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", said Vincent Wang, PUBG Mobile general manager. However, a report from SensorTower says the game was pulling in around $650,000 per day thanks in part to the launch of the new Royale Pass.

PUBG Mobile comes as a scaled-down version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds that was released for Microsoft Windows back in December previous year. This could give PUBG Mobile an edge over Fortnite due to its strong presence on Google Play Store. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone. The game is touted to be the "most accessible mobile game" - taking on Fortnite that is yet to reach all Android devices. While playing PUBG Mobile, the players are deployed on an island and in fact, there are one hundred players that are deployed on an island in a quest to fight and defeat others to win the title of the victor by outlasting everyone on the island.
