PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds sales have hit eight digits. Bluehole today announced that its last-man-standing shooter has sold more than 10 million copies on Steam since it launched in Early Access on March 23.

All those copies of the game are being put to use, as well. The company said the game set a new peak concurrent user mark boosted by interest in the PUBG Invitational tournament at Gamescom, with more than 970,000 players on Steam at the same time.
