The mobile version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has passed 100 million downloads and 14 million people play the game on their smartphone or tablet every day, publisher Tencent announces.

With these numbers, users in China, Japan and Korea would not be counted. The figures for those regions are not known. The Chinese Tencent reports the news to GameIndustry.biz . The game has reached those numbers in a period of just under five months.

The biggest competitor of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite: Battle Royale, has not yet reached this kind of figures. That is not surprising, since Fortnite is only widely available for iOS and the Android version has only just become widely available.

Unlike the versions for Xbox One and Windows, the mobile versions of the game can be downloaded for free. That is an obvious explanation for breaking through the records that the game managed to establish at its peak last December. Nevertheless, 14 million active players a day means that waiting for matchmaking should not last long.

Recently, PUBG Corp. known that it is starting a campaign called ‘Fix PUBG’ , which takes several months and in which the developers have to eliminate the biggest bugs and performance problems. The campaign even has an issuetracker . In addition, since this weekend, PUBG for Windows can also be found on the e-sports platform FaceIt, where the matches have 64 players and the circle moves slower and later than in the regular game. The latter is something that some of the players have been asking for for some time.
