PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS - An unprecedented success
The development of PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is by no means over. The developers will continue to work on improvements and completely new features. The 1.0 PC version is not that in their eyes End productbut rather the Cornerstone. If you consider the well over 10 million players, this is not surprising either. PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS was always planned by developer Studio Bluehole as a long-term project that is continuously being developed.
"The 1.0 launch marks the end of the first chapter of our development team's effort to bring forth the best battle royale experience for our players. But this is just the beginning. After 1.0 is out, we will continue to uphold our open development principles and keep listening to your feedback, as we have done through Alpha, Beta and Early Access stages of the process. Reaching version 1.0 for us means establishing the basic structure for the smooth Battle Royale gameplay of our game. Balancing and polishing in terms of gunplay, sound, animations and other features and systems will continue after launch. "
