According to Bloomberg tech reporter Yuji Nakamura, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has reached a total of 30 million sales. While the game continues to sell worldwide, the playerbase is shrinking due to several reasons.
Nakamura recently turned to Twitter to show that despite the game’s massive popularity, monthly player count is declining. He revealed that cheating in the title, which has been one of the major issues over last couple of months, is the main reason behind the declining figures.
For instance, few days earlier, BattlEye revealed that it has banned over a million gamers in the month of January alone. However, the cheating is still widespread and as a result, the latest data shows a strong decline in the game’s daily gamers. You can check out the tweet below.
