PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been selling like hot cakes and for good reason too. There has been a lot of hype surrounding the game and even though there have been plenty of sales there are people that won’t buy the game until it is complete.
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. If you do not want to buy a game that is in early access then that would make complete sense but it seems that the game is leaving early access sooner than later.
According to Greene the game should come out of early access in not more than 6 months time. He stressed the fact that things like these take time but that does not mean that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is going to remain in early access forever. According to him:
“don’t expect Early Access to last longer than six months.”
6 months is a fair window and even though the game is not perfect, it is not unplayable either. It more than enough to keep you hooked for long durations of time and it is much more fun if you have friends playing with you. Greene further went on to say:
“Game development is hard. What makes it hard is, we work with Unreal, which is a joy because they have a company that is focused on making an engine. So there’s 40 people just working on code for the engine. You look at Daybreak and Bohemia, they’re working on their own engines, and that’s just infinitely harder.
Greene is passionate about releasing the game and it is safe to assume that when the final version comes out, even more people will buy the finished product. The game is already super popular and it is still in early access. I can only imagine the sales when the game is finished.
“I can guarantee you, six or seven months and we’re out of early access. It’s the team. It’s a matter of honour, you know? We will finish this game in six months.”
I am also looking forward to seeing what kind of rewards early adopters of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds get. It will be interesting to see all the new content that will be added to the game from now till the release date. Check out our guide on how to survive when playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
