PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is well on its way to overtake Counter-Strike in the top 3 of Steam's most played games. The battle royale shooter has sold over 7 million copies now, and has hit 400,000 concurrent players.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will soon force me into writing a template news piece for its sales figures so I can just plug in ever increasing numbers into the post and call it a day.

The game has now sold over 7 million copies and reached 400,000 concurrent players according to SteamCharts. It is currently lagging behind Counter-Strike: Global Offensive by just a few thousand players when it comes to peak daily user numbers at around 600,000.

The developers at Bluehole have also announced via Steam that there will be changes to the frequency of updates, claiming that the way the system is set up now simply doesn't produce the desired results.

"We’ve found internally that being rushed to finish certain features, and having shorter QA test time between pushing updates caused more issues than it solved in regards to maintaining a high standard of quality. We want to put our best content out, and ensure that everything we do is making the game more enjoyable with every update", reads part of the announcement.

The team has also said that this new way of providing updates will have no effect on the final release date and general development timeline for the game.
