PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Now Won’t Leave Early Access Until Q4 2017

The widely popular PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is still on it’s way to a full release, but it’s going to take a bit longer before that date comes according to the game’s developers.PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now available via Steam Early Access for $29.99 United States dollars.Speaking in a post on Steam, Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene said, “As we continue to fix bugs, improve gameplay and add new content, it’s important to for us to deliver you a fully realized and polished Battle Royale experience as we look towards launch”.The full release of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the survival shooter that has sold more than four million copies while in Steam’s Early Access program, is being delayed until the fourth quarter of 2017. The emphasis is on “delivering a fully featured game”, noting that if they did launch by the end of that six-month period at it didn’t adhere to proper standards, it could lead to disappointment from the PuBG community. ‘There’s a great game here, and if you can convince a few friends to pick it up with you, it’s one of the most tense, but most rewarding, co-operative games I’ve played in the last few years.”We want to ensure that the game we release is the best version possible”, Greene continued. “I can guarantee you, six or seven months and we’re out of early access”. We hope this makes sense, and appreciate your understanding.That is very fair and being an early adopter of the game I know how it was in the initial stages and how far it has come since then. So there’s 40 people just working on code for the engine.They set the example of Bohemia with DayZ and justify them because they have to create their own engine.”Game development is hard”, he said.As mentioned above, the team at Bluehole seems so confident in their abilities that they’ve already been teasing new maps and game modes.Battlegrounds launched in late March, which would have put its self-imposed six month deadline somewhere around late September.
