As a matter of fact, PUBG managed to draw in a huge crowd with a player count of over 1 million within its first 48 hours of being available for Microsoft's current generation console in "early access". Creator Brendan Greene told Kotaku in December that the vast majority of PUBG cheaters are now based in China, where cheating in online games is "seen as kind of a little bit more acceptable" than it is in other regions.

Some players are having trouble finding Squad games with people that speak their language and are being paired with Chinese players, which doesn't sound like a very enjoyable experience at all. "[The studio has] already released four updates since the game's launch in Xbox Game Preview on December 12". PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds continues its reign as a sales behemoth and as a smart move for Microsoft.

The game's Xbox One launch, however, didn't go without its hiccups.
