An Astounding Percentage of PUBG Cheaters Come from One Country

PUBG hit 30m in sales this week, but it is churning hard.

If the lower player numbers are indeed a result of cheating rather than a natural decline in players, PUBG Corp will be looking to take quick action. This looks to be PUBG's biggest drop in active players since the game debuted on Steam Early Access in March 2017. As impressive as that is, it's still not been enough to prevent the game seeing its first notable drop in players since it first blew up. Staring on February 18 and ending on February 24, those that purchase an Xbox One X will also receive a free copy of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

In the US and Canada, there are great savings on Xbox One S bundles, including the new Xbox One S PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Bundle launching February 20 and available for pre-order today. The game's peak concurrent player count on the PC is more than 3 million. Gamers who play PUBG - which features 100 players skydiving onto a large map, looting buildings, and fighting off each other until one player/squad remains - have had their gameplay experiences marred by constant cheaters who've avoided being banned.

Hitting the 30 million sales milestone, as shown by SteamSpy, is no small feat and it's something that very few games get to achieve throughout their lifetime, let alone less than a year of release and just two months after launching its full version. Until recently, PUBG hasn't really had any competition in the 100-player arena genre, so other quality contenders are going to snag some of the attention.

Since PUBG's release in China, its player base there has shot up.
