PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Stopping Regular Updates
This slowdown will "drastically reduce the amount of unforeseen issues."
According to Bluehole’s announcement on the game’s Steam page, they realized that pushing out the regular updates was rushing the project and causing more problems than they were supposed to be solving.
Thusly, they are giving themselves more time to test the features before they go out. It’s likely that another update won’t be coming until the game’s release, so it seems that Bluehole really wants to make sure they get PUBG right.
This slowdown will “drastically reduce the amount of unforeseen issues,” like the numerous glitches just about anyone who had played the game often encounters. So the studio will of course, still be issuing patch notes with each update they do eventually bring, even if it is not on the regular anymore. This way, Bluehole states, they can get plenty of feedback and work more coherently with players to get the game right.
As mentioned before, PUBG is still on track for its release date. Bluehole is not in anyway “winding down the development” nor have they become complacent regarding the game. They simply have a lot of work to do and wish to focus on making PUBG the greatest experience ever. It certainly has been a fun experience so far, with the game’s current popularity during its Early Access period.
So be sure to keep up the support and keep letting Bluehole about any issues you see, or if you happen to see anything you like about the game. Both are always worth talking about, as PUBG is certainly one of the best battle royale games out there as of late.
There is no official release date yet, but be sure to keep watch and PUBG should be out by the end of the year.
