PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hits a whopping 3 million concurrent players on Steam

30 December 2017

PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is perhaps the world's most popular last-man-standing shooter on the market today, boasting over 26 million owners on Steam (±151,338) according to Steam Spy.

As seen in the tweet below, as of yesterday, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has officially banned upwards of 1.5 million players, thanks to the developer's security technology of choice, BattlEye.

This latest PUBG patch takes the game one step closer to being in line with its PC counterpart.

The success of the game has warranted a port onto other operating systems, and there seems to be evidence that Microsoft copied an Xbox One PUBG advertisement.

The next Xbox One update is slated for a release early January.

The PUBG team explains that it was a "combination of causes" that resulted in this lag and issues with character placement readjustment.

The main issue that the small patch aims to fix is intermittent in-game lag, and crashing and authentication issues. "The issues can not be attributed to one or two causes and have stemmed from a combination of different factors which is why we need to continuously work on resolving and investigating the problem", PUBG Corp said.

With the 1.0 patch, PUBG Corp said it remove inefficiencies in its server infrastructure, as well as include some optimizations to help alleviate the problem.

However, a collection of issues were noticed by fans on the PC, leading Bluehole to release a new patch to combat the problems.
