It’s been over two months since Epic Games’ Fortnite took over PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) as the most popular title in the battle royale genre. While the game’s player numbers are by no means low, the developer has finally decided to listen to player feedback, and has announced a new initiative simply called Fix PUBG.
On the initiative’s main page, we see this message:
This is a phrase that we’ve been hearing a lot lately. Bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG’s true potential, and you want it fixed. So we think it’s time to do something about it.
Further down the page is a roadmap (shown below) on what the developer has planned over the next three months, as well as details of the kinds of fixes that are being planned.
This has been, if anything, a long time coming. If you play PUBG, or watch others play it, then you’ll know that it is a game that’s not very well polished or optimised, with a vast number of bugs that can either make the experience less than pleasant or downright painful.
If anything, this would be the main reason that it lost the top battle royale seat to Fortnite. so it’s nice to finally see something being done about it.
