PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds may have gotten off to a bit of a crap start on Xbox One, but the game's issues clearly weren't enough to put punters off the multiplayer juggernaut. Quite the opposite in fact, as it's now been confirmed the game has notched up over three million players on Microsoft's box. 

The Big M announced the news on Xbox Wire, confirming that PUBG passed the milestone at the end of 2017 after previously nabbing one million players in just 48 hours. Pleasingly, the company also revealed that the game's developer is looking to improve the title with future updates, with one of them rolling out earlier this week

PUBG launched in December last year for Xbox's Game Preview initiative, although in its unfinished state contains a number of issues that its creator is attempting to patch up. Four updates have already been released for the Xbox One version of the game, while its PC counterpart received a fresh patch this week. 

Speaking of the PC edition, that version managed to pull in an equally impressive three million concurrent players on Steam late last year. Evidently, these numbers prove that PUBG is only just getting started in dominating the online multiplayer space, so it'll be interesting to see just how the game continues to grow throughout 2018.
