PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been very popular among the gaming community since its inception and developer Bluehole Studio has been supporting the game with new content and updates regularly as the game is currently in early access. Now, the devs have revealed that they intend to support PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for years to come.
Speaking with CNET, PlayerUnknown revealed that the studio intends to support PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for years to come after its full launch which will happen by the end of 2017. According to the devs, the studio will keep on improving and adding new features to the game.
My boss says we’re building this as a service, not as a game. Over the coming years, we’re just going to keep upgrading and keep improving and keep adding to the game, much like what Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has done.
We’re not looking at this as a short term game, we’re looking at this as something we want to do for the next 10 years.
In related news, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is now the record-holder for the highest peak player count on Steam for a non-Valve game. The game achieved this by passing Fallout 4 on Steam charts and is just behind CS: GO and Dota 2 and it seems that the game might not have any trouble surpassing those too.
Also, the studio has confirmed that players will have much more customization options for their characters. Chang Han Kim, Bluehole’s executive producer mentioned that the developers are working on adding a lot more customization options to the game.
We plan to give our users much more control over character appearance by implementing Anticto’s Mutable character customization system. Soon, you will be able to design your character to a tee.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is a multiplayer survival game currently in early access for PC and will launch for consoles later.
