'PUBG' mobile app surpasses 100 million downloads

Doesn't hurt that the 'Fortnite' mobile app is still in beta on Android.

In the constant fight between battle royale games Fortnite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), it might seem like the former has taken over most of the mindshare (and profits), especially on console and PC. On mobile, however, PUBG is doing pretty well, with reports of double the downloads as Fortnite's own mobile title. Now mobile publisher Tencent claims that it has passed the 100 million download mark across iOS and Android (a platform on which Fortnite remains in beta).

PUBG mobile launched onto mobile devices March 19th of this year. In the four months since, the title has also surpassed 14 million daily active users, excluding those in China, Japan and Korea. The title is often updated with new maps and game modes, as well as a recent Mission: Impossible crossover event, which may have helped keep its profile high.

"We want to thank our committed development team at Lightspeed and Quantum Studios and especially thank the devoted players around the world that continue to inspire us with their passion and dedication," said Tencent's Vincent Wang. "We will continue to set the bar for mobile gaming and look to deliver even more great content to our players later this year."
