If you were one to question the viability and potential of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on console, this latest news is sure to put you in your place.

PUBG has certainly found a place among console heavyweights, having pulled 5 million players through the online turnstile and into the open world battle royale spectacular.

It’s taken less than three months for the game to reach that figure on Xbox One, impressive considering the game’s initial struggles, multiple updates, and differences when compared to the PC version.

It had reached the three million milestone by January, with more than one million copies sold within the first 48 hours of it even being on sale.

Xbox One players were gifted 30,000 Battle Points to celebrate the four-million player milestone in late January, and similar rewards are being handed out to mark the five-million mark milestone.
