PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ Devs Aim to "Fix PUBG" Over Three-Month Roadmap


PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) kickstarted the nascent battle royale genre. But since it debuted in late 2017, the game has fallen a bit out of favor, with competitors like Fortnite usurping its place in pop culture consciousness.

PUBG Battlegrounds has been given a new update on Xbox One, although fortunately no downtime is required.

"This is a phrase that we've been hearing a lot lately", reads a site statement, referencing the common player complaint, "Fix the game".

"Bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG's true potential".

It continues: "Throughout this campaign we'll share specifics about what we're working on and the expected time it'll take to address the issues".

While the average frames per second has steadily risen since launch, it would intermittently drop to below 60 roughly every 10 seconds, causing an annoying stutter effect.

Its introduction in the first place likely stemmed from PUBG Corp.'s wish to lower the entry barrier for newcomers to the game but the pro gamers seem to have won this round.

Fans know it and developer PUBG Corp. know it, and now they're finally starting to do something about it.

Anti-cheat is also top of the list, with PUBG Corp cracking down on cheaters with legal action and a "combined anti-cheat solution".

Last week, PUBG Corp. issued a statement about when we could see the next map drop on Xbox One consoles, too. But it's part of the studio's roadmap nonetheless, and the devs are taking into consideration things like ping, distance, and language.
