  • Fortnite and PUBG Map Proportions Compared

Creator Brendan Greene's tweet dropped in the fact that the game hit the milestone at the weekend, just to be sure we all know that it wasn't beaten to the punch by Epic's Fortnite, which also hit 20m this weekend.

Now, the developer has chose to celebrate the 20 million milestone with a new patch that brings small and yet important changes to the game.

In addition to selling over 20 million copies, the game has set records for most concurrent players on Steam, surpassing 2 million in October. PUBG 1.0 will hit PC sometime in December, while the full version of Fortnite is slated to arrive in mid-2018. This player figure includes both paid base game and the free-to-play Battle Royale game.
