PUBG Mobile hits 100 million downloads

Battle royale's mobile version also reaches 14 million daily active users

Today, PUBG Corporation and Tencent announced that PUBG Mobile has reached over 100 million downloads internationally since its launch in March. This excludes downloads in China, Japan, and Korea.

In addition, the game surpassed 14 million daily active users at a point less than four months after launch. During the game's first week, it was the most-downloaded mobile game in over 100 different countries.

"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 the publishing team's general manager Vincent Wang. "We will continue to set the bar for mobile gaming and look to deliver even more great contents to our players later this year."

PUBG Mobile has also seen a revenue increase since the release of its Royale Pass, with Sensor Tower estimates seeing its revenue reach $30 million as of the end of July.
