PUBG as a Service: No Sequel Plans

A video on IGN Access features an interview with PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Brendan "PLAYERUNKNOWN" Greene about the future of this battle royale game that's taken the PC gaming scene by storm (thanks GameSpot). He discusses plans to launch the game on Xbox One, and looks to the future, saying rather than gearing up to create a sequel, the plan is to evolve the original game to follow the games as a service model. Here's word on where he sees the game five years from now:

Oh no, we're building this game as a service. So, we'll still have the boxed copy that you buy, that's what you get for PUBG. We still want to polish and refine and add more maps, add more assets, and continually kind of refine the gameplay and optimize as we go forward.

I'm picturing more of a Team Fortress 2 model. Keep the community alive with constant updates, lots of little cosmetics players can buy, a lively competitive scene. Games As Service doesn't necessarily mean Subscription Fees anymore.

From what I see of their attitude and sense of entitlement I'd say they honestly believe that the sun shines out of their asses and will think they can charge for it as a service and get away with it. They're in for a rude awakening if they do. And the fact they're discussing this while their first game is still in EA only confirms that suspicion for me. It reminds me of devs like Crytek who believed their own press and where are they now? On fames backside is where.

Be careful.
You're at risk of collapsing in on yourself and forming a blackhole at this density.
