PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hit a whopping 30 million sales this week, but the game is seeing its daily active player base on PC decline.

Bloomberg tech reporter, Yuji Nakamura, shared the news on Twitter, suggesting that cheaters could be to blame for the drop.This is the most significant drop in players since the game's launch, and has been dropping off since January.
