    "This definitely should be ranked higher for games like PUBG for Android. The overall premise of the game just gives it a more original vibe. That's what I prefer when playing these types of games"


Did you know that the brains behind PUBG was an Irish? He is Brendan Greene. He was born in Ireland but moved to Brazil to work as a photographer and web developer. He stayed in South American country for two years but eventually came back to Ireland. Here, he began making his own way into game development. This was a time when classic game Arma 2 was modded into DayZ: Battle Royale. The immense success that the game had opened Greene's eyes. Months later, he went to Seoul as South Korean company Bluehole had hired him. They were impressed by Greene’s ideas on battle royale games. This resulted in Greene being the company's creative director. In mid-2016, the development of PUBG started and the rest is history.

According to a report by the research firm SuperData, PUBG was the highest-earning premium game in 2018. The game earned a total of over $1 billion in digital revenue. The game is considered as one of the more successful games today. The game’s mobile version has also raked in large numbers, raking in $32.5 million worldwide in November 2018 alone. Despite Fortnite being the most famous battle royal game at that time, PUBG rivaled it well. By December 2018, the game's earnings reached over $200 million to give it a great position in the battle royal games arena. The battle royal genre brings drama and excitement into the gaming world. No doubt, PUBG has made its mark with this era of gamers. Today, the genre's premium console revenue, Steam, has even forecasted the game to earn $7 billion in 2019.
