PUBG Corp. the publisher for Bluehole Studio and battle royale title PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds revealed its financial earnings for 2018 this week, announcing that they had earned a staggering $920 million dollars in revenue.

According to the report (translated by @sinonobu) the PC platform saw the lion's share of the gold, pulling in around $790 million dollars. Mobile ports raked in a cool $65 million, with the rest of the money attributed to consoles and other sources. Of note, 53% of all PUBG Corp's income came courtesy of the Asia market.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has grown to be quite the behemoth since its humble origins as a DayZ mod. Today, PUBG is one of the most globally-recognised battle royale titles. Original developer Brendan Greene recently announced that he was finally moving on from the day-to-day development of the project to work on new ideas.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is available now on PS4, PC, Xbox One and iOS and Android devices.
