PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) creator, Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene, has his sights set firmly on the success of hit MOBA League of Legends as a target for his battle royale game.
Despite PUBG shifting 10 million copies and becoming the most played game on Steam, the game is hardly a splash in the ocean compared to the success of League of Legends, and it’s that level of success that Greene is eyeing according to an interview with GameIndustry.
“Our sales curves are just going up. They’re not slowing down,” creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene told GamesIndustry. “I’m still waiting for that plateau, and it’s just not happening yet.”
“I just look at League of Legends. 100 million active users a month, I think, something stupid like that?” he added. “If we play our cards right, maybe we can get to that level of users.”
Despite this, even if the game managed to get 100 million active users a month, PUBG will remain at the game’s current price according to Greene, however he did caution that this could change, but for the time being it’ll remain at around $30.
