PUBG Creator Teases Content Roadmap for 2018

PUBG Creator Teases Content Roadmap for 2018

What's in store for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in 2018?

Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene is in Amsterdam and teasing the content roadmap for PUBG in 2018.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds enters its second year in a strange position. While dominating the conversation in 2017, PUBG Corp. has spent the beginning of its second year combating cheaters, something the company says has slowed down its efforts on delivering new content and improvements to the game.

While we know a new snow map is on the way at some point, there are still a lot of uncertainties about where PUBG will go in 2018. Quality of life improvements such as fixing some of the bugginess of the game, and some balance changes are sure to come, along with requested features such as map selection are also potentially in the works.

PUBG for its part just wrapped up a PUBG Invitational as the game mounts an esports offensive. Though that hasn't necessarily impacted PUBG's base game content rollout.

In the meantime, Epic's Fortnite Battle Royale has surpassed PUBG as the most popular game on Twitch thanks to both the game's popularity and a recent Amazon Prime promotion which offered free Battle Royale loot.
