It’s been a few weeks since PUBG was updated on the Xbox One. The Xbox Game Preview version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is in desperate need of fixes and apparently they’re on the way. With the game being left in a state of disarray after the February 7th release of Patch #8, those who’ve purchased the game are starting to wonder when fixes are coming.
According to PUBG’s Lead Community Manager, Update #9 is on the way.
“We plan to deploy the patch in the next couple of weeks,” says the developer. “As you may know, we still need to go through cert after development for this patch is done. And there might be delays if we run into any unexpected issues but we are doing our best to meet this deadline.”
Further into the comments they say that “Our number one priority is optimization and improving stability of PUBG on Xbox Game Preview. So you will see some meaningful improvements along with some quality of life fixes in the next patch.”
PUBG on Xbox One continues to have both big and small problems at the moment and feels like its far from being a finished product. There are plenty of issues that PUBG Corp have on their plate at the moment for the Xbox One version. Frame Rate, Hit Detection, Network Connectivity, and game crashes are big issues that are still prevalent in the game. But there are also little things as well, like the crashing sound that the boats make in the game that seem like they’d be smaller fixes for the developer, yet they have gone unfixed for weeks.
Eventhough Battlegrounds on Xbox One is broken in many regards, people are still playing the game. Last count for Xbox One players was roughly four million, and with the marketing and bundles that Microsoft has been doing, that number will likely continue to grow. Hopefully, now that we’ve settled into 2018 the updates will come more frequently for the game, and if these latest comments are truthful it sounds like they will.
All that said, there’s still quite a ways to go for the Xbox One version of the game to get up to par with PC. Xbox One owners are still wondering when the Miramar Desert Map will be coming to the game, which there doesn’t seem like a concrete timeline for at this point.
