Looks like this chicken isn’t gonna stop anytime soon. Recently, the hit battle royale title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds crossed the 12 million sales mark, putting it ahead of Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Valve’s Half-Life 2. The game has seen immense success in a very short period of time. How short? In the beginning of September, the devs had posted on Twitter, celebrating 10 million sales.
10 MILLION SOLD! Never did I think we would reach such a number! Thank you all for your continuing support of the @PUBATTLEGROUNDS team <3

That’s not all. PUBG, as it is known lovingly, has accomplished this feat in a mere 6-month window. AND, the game is still in Early Access! I may not be a huge fan of the title myself, but I have to admit, it’s really impressive to see how popular the game has become in such a short period of time. With the upcoming release on the Xbox One, the game is bound to see much higher numbers. Who knows, the way things are going, maybe this could turn into the highest selling title of all time.
