PUBG earned some impressive revenue during its last year, which is really an achievement despite all the negative news about it. But the Mobile version revenue numbers are surprising, to say the least.
Among all the devices used to play the game PC accounted for $790 million and was the most profitable platform. This was followed by mobile which earned $65 million followed by console at $58 million, while $6 million has been attributed to other sources. Ahmad emphasized that the reason for mobile revenue for PUBG Corp being low despite being the most popular mode platform of the game is because Tencent developed and published the mobile version of the game.
Besides that, if it were to be divided into the regions and how it was popular, it has been noted that Asia accounted for 53 percent of PUBG Corp’s revenue in 2018 with about $487 million in revenue. This does not come as a surprise at all since the Asia and South Asia servers are the busiest and the most populated ones, at any given time.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds publisher and Bluehole and its studio PUBG Corp have just announced the financials for the full year of 2018, and the report says that it earned a total of $920 million in revenue. Out of this, $311 million was earned in profit. According to the translation shared by Daniel Ahmad who is an analyst of Niko Partners, there is a breakdown of revenue by console.
