News of this new Xbox One PUBG update comes after last week Bluehole announced that the early access Xbox game had crossed 5 million players.

Back in early December, Microsoft announced that the game had amassed a million players on Xbox One.

In one month, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – you might have heard of it – had amassed 3 million players on Xbox One.

This doesn’t equate exactly to sales (as many of you have pointed out – my apologies) as multiple accounts can access a game on an Xbox One.

It’s even more impressive that PUBG raced to 1 million players in just 48 hours on Xbox One.

Today, that number has once again grown.

“Today we celebrate a huge milestone for the PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS community,” writes Microsoft in its 5,000,000 player video celebration.
