We're presented with a lot of plans for the PUBG future, but fans are still concerned about the current situation of the game.
PUBG celebrates its third anniversary with free skins and plans for the future

Can you believe that PUBG is "only" three years old? Sometimes it seems that it has been here for almost a decade, but years don't lie - the game was released in 2017.

For its third birthday, developers are giving everyone free 3rd Anniversary Item Box, with Hoodie, M416, and Parachute skins, created by winners of Global Skin Contest.

Besides free skins, developers also talked about things they delivered in 2019, but also about their plans for the current year.


They say that they want to "continue to improve upon what's made PUBG so popular these last 3 years," which includes map reworks, new maps, new weapons, and mechanics. Arcade's Team Deathmatch is also something they want to deliver this year, as well as a bunch of quality of life improvements and bug fixes.

Amongst those plans, one of the first things they want to deliver is Vikendi rework, which was already tested by players via PUBG Partners program.

This all sounds good on paper, but when you read the comments section on this announcement, you'll see that most of the players aren't happy with the current state of the game. Most of them want better anti-cheat systems since the game became infamous for its notorious cheating problems, and also want better optimization of the game. This issue is plaguing the game since the beginning and it should really be a top priority for the developers.
