    The Shortlist:

    Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

    Nier: Automata

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    The Winner (Winner, Chicken Dinner):

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

From dominating the Steam player stats charts, to shifting over 27 million copies on the platform according to estimates from SteamSpy, and already clearing several million on Xbox One in less than a month, PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds is setting records left, right, and centre. It's not just been the sales surprise of 2017, it's a front-runner for sales surprise of the generation so far.
