Despite PUBG Mobile being pulled in China after failing to secure approval for a monetization model, the game continues to put up staggering numbers. Recently, the game topped 400 million downloads and is now boasting over 50 million active daily users. Those numbers exclude what they were getting from China. The game’s esports scene is picking up as well with the 2019 PUBG Mobile Club Open boasting a $2.5 million prize pool later this year.
