PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has sold over 20 million units and looks to continue its success, despite recent setbacks.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been in Steam Early Access since March and is set to receive a console release before the Christmas holiday. Two short months ago, PUBG surpassed 10 million units sold, which is part of why it's so remarkable that on Tuesday morning, Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene announced that this total has been doubled.

One thing to note here is that PlayerUnknown has acknowledged that his game has experienced some recent setbacks. Despite an estimate that PUBG 1.0 was in line to hit before the end of the year, internal issues may potentially be throwing a monkey wrench into Bluehole's schedule.

But warts and all, PUBG appears to have a rich player base and even richer sales numbers. Look for Bluehole's game to achieve even greater sales number when the Xbox One version hits in December.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
