Battle Royale is the hottest new thing in gaming, with games like GTA Online and even Fortnite- a game by Epic, the creator of the Unreal Engine that PUBG is using. The appeal of 100-player battle it out until one player left standing in a huge map that slowly shrinks in size is really strong. And the numbers certainly support that notion.
