Although PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has picked up Minecraft when it comes to PC sales, there is a sales meltdown that we can never forget: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) surpasses Minecraft but it is still far away from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which is awarded the best-selling PC video game in history. According to data from SteamSpy, there are currently 27.8 million copies of the game downloaded on Steam.
SteamSpy suggests the presence of a margin of error equal to about 160,000 units: PUBG would have thus effectively sold more than 27,640,000 units, compared to 27,598,163 of Minecraft, according to the data revealed on its official website at the time of writing this news. A gap of 42,000 copies, just enough to make PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds the best-selling PC video game of all time.
In addition to the excellent sales, PUBG continues to register new records, last weekend the stats of three million users connected at the same time was broken, numbers even higher than those of titles like DOTA 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
These numbers, moreover, do not take into account the Xbox One version, which seems to have had considerable success since the launch, and that launched last December 12th.
