Bluehole gave us a little insight into the continued development of PUBG today including the road to the official “1.0” launch and the upcoming Xbox One version’s release.
We only have 11 weeks until the end of 2017 and we know you have many questions about our development roadmap. To make sure we deliver PC 1.0 version and Xbox Game Preview by the end of this year, our development team is hard at work day and night. Today, we would like to share our plans on how we are preparing for PC 1.0 and Xbox Game Preview launch.
Many of you already know the new content and features that will be available in PC 1.0 version from reading media interviews and articles. Currently we have been using an internal build to develop and test new content and features including vaulting & climbing, desert map, new vehicles and 3D replay. We have been constantly working on optimization and stabilization as well. We will be able to share more about the roadmap soon, once the development has progressed further.
Road to Launch
Our development team is heavily focusing on developing the builds for PC 1.0 and Xbox Game Preview. For PC, we will be only focusing on doing our best to stabilize the launch build and we don’t have any plans to deploy patches to live servers except for this week. However, there will be features like vaulting and climbing which will have a huge impact on the game and need to be tested for at least a month. We will be running test servers at least three times in preparation for that.
Through these test servers, we would like to conduct large scale tests for the content and features that are not in the live build and create a foundation for a very stable official launch.

PUBG continues to be the hottest game in the world and is continuing to put up numbers that amaze (15+ million sold and 2.3+ million concurrent players). Bluehole has been working tirelessly to optimize the game for the official launch. The expectation at this time is that the same version will release on the Xbox One, likely in December, in the Xbox Game Preview Program. We’ll be watching this one closely as we’re sure Xbox fans are as well.
