The multiplayer online battle royale game from publisher Microsoft and developer PUBG Corp. - PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds - sold 581,761 units first week at retail on the Xbox One, according to our estimates. First week sales can be viewed on the VGChartz Global Weekly Chart for the week ending December 16.

The figures come from sales of a code in a box, therefore, digital sales of the game will be much higher than a standard retail release.

 

Breaking down the sales by region, the game sold best in the US with 349,684 units sold (60%), compared to 146,895 units sold in Europe (25%). Looking more closely at Europe, the game sold an estimated 69,654 units in the UK, 19,986 units in Germany, and 11,667 units in France.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds released for the Xbox One worldwide on December 12, 2017 as an Xbox Game Preview title.

Might have to do something with the game being on game preview. When it launches as a finished product, we can then probably expect a physical disc release

@PhatChips, not so sure. a game like PUBG which is purely a MP online game they may decide a disk release is just an unnecessary additional cost.

Only saying from what I have seen with Ark Survival Evolved. Conan Exiles is also coming to retail in May, when the game is going out of early access. So I assume we'll see PUBG launch on PS4 and Xbox on retail disc too

Not bad for a digital game. They need to heavily update it fast.
