PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS Turns Two

There's a PUBG 2nd Anniversary Letter on Steam celebrating the second anniversary of the release of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS, which kicked off a battle royale craze that continues to this day. Word is: "We’ve witnessed a gaming revolution with the birth of the Battle Royale genre, grew and learned together through beta and early access, and watched our game rise from a small title developed by an even smaller team to one of the most played games in the world. We’ve chosen this day as our overall PUBG anniversary for all platforms, as we felt it best reflects our game’s humble beginnings." This includes a video with a special message from CH Kim, the CEO of PUBG Corporation. The video is in Kim's native Korean, but it features English subtitles. Here's a bit on their plans going forward:

But just because we’re celebrating how far we’ve come doesn’t mean we’re not aware of what we still need to accomplish. We’re currently deep into planning improvements to our first map, Erangel. The first changes in this process, increasing and improving loot, have already deployed to test servers, where we welcome your feedback.

We can never properly thank you for your unparalleled support, but on a day such as this, we are happy, we are humbled, and we are more dedicated than ever to making PUBG the best game it can possibly be.

Fortnite and PUBG are still of the most played and most profitable games on the planet and have been since they were release back in 2017.

So yeah, might want to check that logic.

I could see the performance being bad if you have a bad pc?

I just checked out PUBG player numbers, for laughs.

Currently 797 000 online. Doesn't seem that dead to me.

Yeah it's still among the top 3. Dota, CSGO and PUBG lead the pack with a HUUUUUUUUGE ass gap between the 3rd spot and no. 4 where the rest of the world begins.

Wow, I didn't realize CS was still that popular; I guess there's a new generation who are relatively new to de_dust or whatever and aren't sick of the gameplay still.
CSGO, master of the skinner box.

In fact, PUBG is no. 2 in peak players in the last 24h with over 850K, only beaten by Dota. CSGO had 640K max simultaneous as a peak and then there's that motherfucker of a gap cuz the next game is Sekiro at 120K.

CSGO has 5x more players than no. 4, PUBG about 7.5X and Dota about 8x more. Just because the numbers have dwindled does not make the game dead.
It's like WoW all over again when it dropped from 13 million subs to under 10 million back ten years ago or so there were people saying the game is dead. Um. Nope.

PUBG vastly outperforms Fortnite and Apex in every market that isn't US,CA, Aus, and the EU. And yes, there's a shittonne of money outside "the west" for these sort of games.
Yeah, I hear they have the Antarctic market locked down.
Don't forget the Western Sahara, huge market there.
Siberia has Brobdingnagian market potential.

Laugh it up if you want, the game makes a killing in Asia and the mobile version makes more in a month than most "AAA" games make in their lifetime. Thinking North America/EU/Aus is the only place videogames exist or can make profit is terribly silly.

Two years old eh? That's pretty cool. Means it is now only two years younger than the average player's age!

And the kids have already moved on to Apex for the next few months before they move on to the next big free multiplayer drug. If you base the success of your game on catering to ADHS kids, you should expect to not be long in business.

PUBG still has its fans, though, but its big days are over and won't come back.

Except PUBG isn't free to play and was a multi-million dollar windfall for developers in just its Beta form.

Yeah until they make PUBG2. Then it's come to papa, all over again.

Then back to momma for Fortnite 2, followed by back to sistah for Apex 2. And then something new comes around - no matter what, it just has to cater to the ADHS audience.

Well, let them. If it's fun to them.
 
They're waiting for you, Gabe, in the test chamber!
