The genre’s popularity is no joke.

The free-to-play Battle Royale mode is live now and apparently, it is very, very popular. The devs went to Twitter to boast about the number of people who joined the fun.

It’s definitely a huge success, but probably one that could not happen without the battle Royale king of the day – PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Not only because the Blue Hole hit has massively popularised the genre recently but also because of the company’s problems with Fortnite’s similarity to their game, which they widely shared in media. All press is good press.
