PUBG Mobile has scored over 100m downloads on Google Play

Tencent's mobile battle royale reaches Android milestone two months after hitting it across platforms

PUBG Mobile has scored over 100m downloads on Google Play

Tencent’s PUBG Mobile has been downloaded over 100 million times on Google Play worldwide.

The mobile port of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds hit the 100 million downloads milestone across both iOS and Google Play earlier this year. These figures however didn’t account for China, Japan and Korea.

PUBG Mobile’s Google Play store listing (below) now confirms that the Android edition has hit that same 100 million install count. This does not include the Chinese version of the title, of which there are two separate localised releases.

Free Range Dinner

According to Tencent and PUBG Corp, PUBG Mobile was one of the fastest games to become the most-downloaded mobile game in over 100 countries.

Not content with one version of PUBG Mobile, the publisher has also soft-launched a Lite version of the battle royale title on Android in the Philippines. That edition features a smaller map and is more optimised for lower-end mobile devices

While not represented in these download figures, PUBG Mobile is still wildly popular in China. But due to a lockdown on game licensing in the region this year, Tencent is yet to see any money from one of the most downloaded mobile games in China.
