PUBG Promises To, Well, "Fix PUBG" by End of October in New Development Roadmap

Server optimization, anti-cheat, and more in PUBG's new development roadmap.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is finally going to tackle the most common complaint people have with the popular battle royale game. Namely, that it's broken and needs to be fixed. PUBG Corp. announced today that it will do just that with its "Fix PUBG" roadmap.

"'Fix the game.' 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," PUBG Corp. writes in its new, dedicated Fix PUBG website.

What follows is a roadmap detailing the next three months of PUBG development starting in August and going on until the end of October. During that time, PUBG Corp. outlines certain milestones and goals it hopes to achieve during the allotted time frame.

For instance, the first fixes will be made at the end of August and will aim to level streaming optimization and report result notification system. By the end of September PUBG Corp. will have hopefully implemented character optimization, and optimized character movement, parachute, and the airplane sequence. Lastly, by the end of October PUBG Corp. should have optimized characters, servers, network code, implemented anti-cheat, improve matchmaking, and fix the remaining bugs.

The whole Fix PUBG website is full of breakdowns and updates detailing what exactly the problems are, and what PUBG Corp. is doing to fix them. There's even a road to 1.0 page for Xbox, though it's not as detailed at the moment.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds took 2017 by storm when it introduced the battle royale genre to the mainstream. In recent months competitors from EA's Battlefield, Activision's Call of Duty, and most notably Epic's Fortnite Battle Royale have taken to do their own battle royale game, with Fortnite being a clear winner so far.

Meanwhile, PUBG suffered from optimization issues, unclear development timelines, and an uptick in cheating. With the new Fix PUBG roadmap, though there are now clear goals for the game and we'll see when exactly these fixes take place. We will be following along with these developments but in the meantime check out our PUBG guide for tips and tricks.
