It has hit 200 million downloads (doesn’t include China)
Fortnite had earlier hit 200 million registered players
PUBG Mobile now has 30 million daily active users and has hit 200 million downloads, Tencent said in a statement. This number excludes China and just highlights how popular PUBG Mobile is across the world. The game has a huge player base in India and many other markets, and the fact that PUBG Mobile runs smoothly on even low-end Android devices has definitely boosted its popularity. However, the 200 million downloads number doesn't paint an accurate picture of how many people play the game. The daily active users is a metric people should look at to gauge PUBG Mobile's popularity and even that number is very high.
Thanks to being on Android (as well as iOS), PUBG Mobile dominates Asia and China according to Sensor Tower, with the US making up only 30 percent of PUBG's revenue. PUBG Mobile on Android is very popular in markets where there aren't many PCs or consoles, such as India. Many people here use Android devices as their primary computing device and that adds to the game's popularity.
