We caught up with Brendan Greene, better known as PlayerUnknown, during TwitchCon and spoke with him about the future of his runaway hit.
Greene sees the future of PUBG as a service, where you buy the game and it evolves with time, rather than working toward a sequel.
“We still want to polish and refine, add more maps, add more assets,” he said.
Greene told us even when the game was still a mod, he imagined it would make a great eSport someday, saying the TwitchCon PUBG Omen Challenge was the sort of spectacle he hoped to one day see.
For the upcoming Xbox One version of the PC megahit, Greene told us he believes the community will drive the “competitive edge” of the game.
“If a competitive scene wants to develop, it will if the community wants it,” he said.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds became the first ever Steam game to break 2 million concurrent users, a milestone it passed earlier in the month.
