CEO of PUBG Corporation ChangHan Kim announced PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has topped nine million players on the Xbox One as the game leaves Xbox Game Preview. This figure is up from eight million in July.

Today, the Full Product Release (1.0) update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds released for new and existing owners across the Xbox One family of devices," said Kim. "This is a big moment for the PUBG Xbox community, now over nine million players strong, who have been every bit an important part of the development process since we first launched in Xbox Game Preview in December 2017."


Kim added that the developer plans to continue updating the game with new content and optimization.

Wow, those are some impressive sales. Does anyone know how bulletproof is the deal with Microsoft?. Is it like a Bayonetta/Sunset Overdrive situation or more like a Nier/Crash type of deal?.

It's not funded by Microsoft, so it's just another timed exclusivity deal, probably for an entire year.

There was something about Rare helping them create water effects or something but not sure how that implements the deal they have going.

There’s no reason it won’t come PS4 in the near future, since neither the IP nor developer are owned by MS. Not to mention, a recent dev diary showed a PS4 Pro in the background of the studio. No doubt they wouldn’t have let that be shown if there was no affiliation with PS or Sony.

Are those 9 million players all actual $30 game sales or are they getting it for free somehow?
