PUBG to reach a new height
PLAYERUNKOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS: Battle Royale simulator now the sixth most popular PC game in the market
Newzoo.com shared their own statistics on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. According to their tracker
PUBG was the sixth most popular game among core PC gamers worldwide, with 10.8% playing the title. It ranked above games like World of Warcraft, GTA V, and Rocket League, and was just behind fellow shooter Overwatch. It was also #6 in terms of play time, accounting for 4.0% of the total time spent on PC games in July. The data in the article is derived from Overwolf’s user base of 12 million PC gaming enthusiasts across 42 countries. It is the top performing game in Japan where 25.4% of core PC gamers played the game in July, 5% more than the #2 game, League of Legends. Japan is generally a console-focused market, so PUBG’s popularity is limited to a relatively small number of PC enthusiasts. Nevertheless, it is significant to see it achieve such a position of dominance so quickly.The game’s strong resonance with Japanese players is perhaps unsurprising considering it is heavily influenced by the cult classic Japanese movie, Battle Royale. PUBG has achieved high percentages of players in many smaller territories, grabbing the attention of 22.5% of PC gaming enthusiasts in Norway, 21.9% in Australia, and 17.1% in New Zealand.
A notable thing is that the whole statistic was gathered from the "core" PC gamers as
derived from Overwolf’s user base of 12 million PC gaming enthusiasts across 42 countries.
So this stats are obviously not full , however they display a certain part of the market.
