So if you haven’t heard of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds you must have just come back from a space mission to the Moon. It is the most played game on Steam at the moment with almost a million online users at any time which surpasses games like Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: GO. With the world basically playing the game it would make sense that developers Blue Hole would activate more servers, and it looks like that is the plan. The Oceanic area is going to be getting servers very soon, that is Australia and the surrounding islands. This isn’t helpful to South African players at all, but at least they are looking at where players are and opening servers if there are enough concurrent players in a region.
PUBG is fast approaching its retail release so maybe the development team will have more servers up around the world for its launch at the end of the year. All we can do is cross our fingers because one thing is for sure it looks like PUBG is going to be around for a long time, with esports tournaments already happening. It looks like there will be plenty of chicken dinners won for many years to come.
