Game's average online decreased by 15k player mark
According to Steam Charts, in March, the average player online in PUBG: Battlegrounds dropped by more than six percent compared to February 2022 - the average monthly PUBG audience dropped below the 230k mark. Online peak in March was 535,000 players, which is 3,000 more than in the previous month.
This is still the best figures for the last ~two years, which was achieved due to the transition of PUBG: Battlegrounds to the conditional free distribution model.
Recall that the highest peak and average online figures were recorded in January 2018: then PUBG averaged more than a million and a half people per month, and the maximum number of players exceeded 3.2 million mark.
