Following PUBG: Battlegrounds officially going free-to-play on January 12, 2022, parent company Krafton has revealed that it has consistently seen a “steady inflow of more than 80,000 new users per day.”

The figures were detailed in Krafton's preliminary earnings announcement for the first half of 2022, where it also shared that “average revenue per user (ARPU) across all platforms increased more than 20% QoQ.” It also noted that international markets outside of South Korea accounted for 94% of PUBG's revenue during Q2 2022.

PUBG Mobile has also been performing well for Krafton, as it currently ranks “second in sales among global mobile games” and helped drive the company's mobile business revenue to $550.7 million.

The earnings announcement also discussed some of Krafton's upcoming games, including Unknown World's new IP that is set in a “sci-fi world that features imaginative turn-based gameplay,” Striking Distance Studios' The Callisto Protocol, and a currently untitled game project based on the Korean fantasy novel, The Bird That Drinks Tears.

In our review of the free-to-play version of PUBG: Battlegrounds, we said that its “unique focus on massive zones and realistic simulation remain a lot of fun, even if its novelty wore off years ago.”
