Throughout the past months, Fortnite has staked its unbeaten claim atop the gaming world. Through timed events and continuous happenings, the best-selling battle royale has outperformed the genre’s initial popularizer, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG).
Unfortunately, PUBG’s deteriorating performance has kept hammering nails on the game’s coffin. While Fortnite enjoyed success, PUBG sank in a mire of game-breaking bugs and hackers. Both steadfast and lapsed gamers have constantly demanded PUBG developers to fix their game.
Listening to the outcry, the development studio is finally making steps to improve the game. PUBG creator Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene has launched a new initiative simply titled “Fix PUBG.”
Highlighted by its own webpage, the initiative seeks much-needed improvements in a plethora of sectors. Moreover, PUBG Corporation also presents a roadmap for these eventual updates. The entire plan supposedly takes only three months to complete.
For more major updates, the studio will optimize servers, improve matchmaking, and eliminate cheaters. Additionally, the updates include quality-of-life improvements for better graphics and effects. The latter set of updates aim to improve performance on individual machines.
To track the roadmap, the PUBG Corporation invites fans to keep checking in on the initiative’s webpage.
While this is a huge leap towards a return to form, it also serves as the developers’ apology letter to all their disappointed fans. Through the website, Greene has definitely admitted to the game’s many shortcomings.
Sadly, the initiative does not indicate if the improvements will also work on the game’s lackluster mobile version. Regardless, we’ll take what we can get with an improved main game.

Cyberpunk 2077 gets delayed, once again
Fans are fuming with anger
Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed again, this time by 21 days. The game was supposed to launch on November 19, but the developer has announced a slight delay, and it’ll be releasing on December 10. Rest assured, fans are furious.
Gamers have had enough of delays and are fuming in anger right now. The game’s initial launch was scheduled for April 2020, but the Coronavirus pandemic radically changed plans. Furthermore, fans are disappointed because the developers had made it certain that the November deadline will be respected.
“We’re aware it might seem unrealistic when someone says that 21 days can make any difference in such a massive and complex game, but they really do,” director Adam Badowski and CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwinski said in a release.

Keep in mind, the developers are working on the game entirely from the work-from-home model. However, CD Projekt Red is indicating the added development time will be all worth it.
The most frustrating part for fans is, the game has been in development for eight years. Apparently, the game was ready-to-play in January itself and has gone Gold already. Going Gold means that the master disc is ready, indicating it’s also ready for release.
So technically, they’ve already created Cyberpunk 2077, and it’s ready for distribution. But, the game awkwardly still isn’t finished. Let’s hope the game released as planned, and there are no more delays. Because, looking at the anger online, another delay could doom the game even before anyone plays it.
