PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Hits 20 Million Sales, Promises “Change is Coming”
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been breaking records left and right, from most numbers of concurrent players on Steam, to quickly growing sales figures. Now, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene has taken to Twitter to announce another milestone for the game.

Greene says that the game has passed 20 million units sold last weekend. This is a truly impressive feat considering the game is still in early access and is yet to be officially released in late December. But that’s not where his tweet ended.
Greene also acknowledged players’ frustration over current issues in the game. But aside from being apologetic, he also remained optimistic in his message, ending with, “Bear with us, change is coming!”

PUBG’s biggest fault right now doesn’t have anything to do with its design, but rather with part of its playerbase. Cheating is the most complained about problem as it is rampant and ruins the otherwise potent experience.
Cheat providers and cheaters themselves have proven to be resilient despite Bluehole’s continued efforts to secure their game. BattlEye had reported that daily cheater bans have numbered to about 13,000 per day. The game has also seen cheat-detection updates recently, with more most likely on the way.
PUBG will see its official 1.0 release in late December, while an Xbox One Game Preview (similar to Steam’s Early Access) is coming on 12 December.
