The Multiplayer Shooter Still Has Bugs It Needs to Fix
The Battle Royale phenomenon PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) isn’t ready for the eSports scene just yet, according to the game’s creator Brendan Greene.
Greene repeatedly insisted in an interview with PCGamesN that the game isn’t “eSports ready” and added that “we’ve never said we’re eSports ready.” Notably, the interview was held just before the PUBG Global Invitational, a PUBG tournament, started.
The tournament began on Wednesday and involves 20 teams competing for $2 million in prizes.
Greene described the competition as “really an experiment with the format and the way we will spectate it.” He also said that 2018 is the year that is “all about getting the game to be eSports ready”.
However, if PUBG is ever going to be a viable game for eSports events then its bugs have to fixed and the game must be able to run smoothly, said Greene.
“We have to make the game competitive, and that means getting all those nitty-gritty bugs out and all the quality of life improvements that the players want, so we may add new features and add new functionality to the game,” Greene told PCGamesN.
