PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds should be out of Early Access in “six months”
PUBG seems eerily similar to other Early Access titles like ARK and DayZ. However, the game doesn’t intend to stay in that state. PUBG is built on Unreal, giving it an advantage over those other titles.
In a recent interview with RPS, PUBG creative director Brendan ‘PlayerUnknown’ Greene said the game will be out soon.
“You look at Daybreak and Bohemia, they’re working on their own engines, and that’s just infinitely harder. I think the ForgeLight engine is a ten year old engine. Now, they’ve improved it considerably since then, but it’s the same with the Arma engine, it’s 15 years old. Now DayZ are making a new engine, and that’s just something which takes time.”
As for a release date? Greene had an answer for that too.
“People tell us we’re not going to be out of Early Access in six months; challenge accepted,” Greene says. “I can guarantee you, six or seven months and we’re out of Early Access. It’s the team. It’s a matter of honor, you know? We will finish this game in six months.”
