PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hits 7 million sales and beats LoL on Twitch

Tencent, The Owners of Riot Games, Invests in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Developer

There's been a rumor floating around recently that Bluehole, the developer of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, had a controlling piece of it bought by Tencent, a Chinese developer that already owns Riot Studios, the creators of League of Legends.

Quality is what the developer should be working on for PUBG.

But while updates may not be coming as frequently as they once did, Bluehole says it will "utilize the test servers for significantly longer periods of time" and still issue patches and any other fixes when necessary. According to a post on PUBG's Steam page, Bluehole made a decision to rework its update schedule as part of an effort to approach game revisions more thoughtfully. Apparently, having to hit preordained deadlines for patch releases caused certain updates and features to be rushed out, causing "more issues than it solved".

Prior to the announcement, the developers released weekly and monthly updates, but they discovered that these scheduled rollouts weren't working. Many diehard players who have hundreds of hours (and I'm not talking about myself here) are waiting for the vaulting update. "We want to put our best content out, and ensure that everything we do is making the game more enjoyable with every update".

Saints fire 2 team doctors after finding out Delvin Breaux has fracture
Eight New Orleans Saints players were not observed on the field Wednesday at the start of the 16 day of training camp practice. New Orleans Saints defensive back Delvin Breaux has a fractured fibula but was initially diagnosed with a contusion.

Now, if the report from the popular financial news publication in China is to be believed, it is not exactly surprising as Bluehole's Battlegrounds is one of the most popular games in the world right now, and it's only available in Early Access on Steam!

According to the latest SteamSpy stats the game has now sold over 7 million copies on Steam, an astonishing feat considering it only came out in March.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is due for a full release at the end of 2017.
