PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds release pushed back to the end of 2017

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds creator Brendan Greene has back off on his promise to have the full game released in under 6 months. 

Speaking on Steam, Brendan explained “I’ve come to realize that restricting the window to a specific month could hinder us from delivering a fully featured game and/or lead to disappointment within the community if the launch deadline is not met.” 

He went on to say “we are going push the full launch back a bit from the initial six-month timeframe, but want to assure you that we are still planning a full release before the end of Q4 2017.”

Although this is a kick in the nuts for those of us chomping at the bit to get playing the full version of Battlegrounds, it comes as a breath of fresh air in the gaming community. Brilliant games can be ruined by false promises and over ambitious release dates, naming no names of course…

*cough*

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has gotten off to a flying start since its release on Steam Early Access, with over 4 million copies sold worldwide. The plan of appealing to streamers is definitely working, with Battlegrounds often leading the race when it comes to twitch viewers.

You can now purchase PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds from Amazon!
