Battlegrounds To Have 10 More Years of Support Says PlayerUnknown
Currently busting all sales record in the Early Access games category, PlayerUnknown’s Battleground is the Battle Royale title of the hour. The one hit wonder will be getting 10 more years of support, says the brain behind the success.
Brendan Greene, or better yet known as PlayerUnknown by the online gaming community, is the mastermind behind the phenomenon that is Battlegrounds. Currently breaking Early Access sales record, the game in question passed the six million unit sold mark after a little over four months since its availability on Steam.
In short, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t a short term profit title.
“My boss says we’re building this as a service, not as a game. Over the coming years, we’re just going to keep upgrading and keep improving and keep adding to the game, much like what Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has done.
We’re not looking at this as a short term game, we’re looking at this as something we want to do for the next 10 years.”
I’m glad to read about someone that holds his game close to the heart and wants to push it forward. I’ve heard of a lot of games out there that are one hit wonders. Battlegrounds, on the other hand, actually looks like it has a large lifespan. If they want to support the game for the next 10 years coming, then, go ahead. So long the developer doesn’t stop improving the game, the community will stay loyal and defend why it is that they still play the game.
This is often an issue we see with bigger titles, a subject PlayerUnknown has frustration towards.
