Players Unknown Battlegrounds, also known as PUBG, is a Battle Royale game that was published in 2016. It immediately caught the attention of gamers like Shroud, ChocoTaco, Lern etc. and quickly became one of the most popular games of the year. The popularity of PUBG was so great that Krafton Inc. was forced to develop a mobile version of the battle royale game.
Big names in the gaming industry, such as Shorud, Dr. Disrespect, and Ninja, have all been spotted streaming PUBG on Twitch. Within a short period of time, the game received billions of downloads. They made a significant revenue profit. Those were the days when PUBG was at its peak.
Fall of PUBG
There was also a PUBG Lite PC version for people whose computers couldn’t support the PUBG’s specifications. However, fame faded over time. The community was progressively taken over by the introduction of new battle royales such as Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Valorant-like shooting games. PUBG’s allure faded in the face of these behemoths.
Due to a lack of players, PUBG Lite was forced to close. PUBG, too, has fewer players now than it had in its golden days. PUBG is streamed by a very small number of streamers. Even the industry’s biggest names have gone on to COD Warzones, Valorant, and games like among us.
Shroud on PUBG
Shroud, the famed gaming giant, has an opinion on the state of PUBG. He stated on his stream that PUBG needs some new ideas to reintroduce it to gamers with a strong appeal. Shroud has streamed PUBG for 2600 hours, making it his most popular game. But for the time being, he is more interested in Valorant.
He quit playing the game for a variety of reasons, although he frequently indicated that he may return. He also stated that he would do so if the game received a sequel. PUBG2
“People think they want this game. But in reality… it’s old, it’s dated, it’s done. That’s it. Let’s move on. Wait for PUBG2,”
“You know what this game would benefit from introducing a new system that involves opening up the map and going, ‘alright, I’m going to click and spawn here, I’m going to click and spawn here, I’m going to click and spawn here, you know?”
For a long time, PUBG has struggled to maintain its player base, especially with competitors like as Warzone and Fortnite releasing plenty of new content. The FPS Valorant has acquired popularity as compared to the battle royales.
