Brendan Greene talked about a PUBG five-year plan which will focus on the esports aspect of the game.
Among many issues, one of the most prominent one for PUBG has been to make it into an esports game that the viewers would love to spectate. PUBG did have its Global Invitational, but qualifiers weren’t without hiccups. So to turn it into an esports, Brendan Greene has started a PUBG five-year plan.
Talking to Express at the PUBG invitational in Berlin, he said, “We outlined a five-year plan for esports, and this year’s all about finding the format, finding the best ruleset for everything and trying to standardize everything so that this can grow.”
“After that, it’s like building the pyramid from amateur to pro-league and making it sustainable.
“We want to support the pro players, so at the PGI we have the hoodies from all the teams and the proceeds from sales go to the teams.
“We’re trying to provide them a way to have a career from playing PUBG. We want a casual player to see this path to pro.”
Greene also stressed on making the esports ecosystem self-sustainable. “You have to find a way for them to invest in your esports.”
As for now, Bluehole is concentrating on making PUBG better by introducing various quality of life improvements as well as bug fixes. They recently started the ‘Fix PUBG’ campaign, where they will try to address the issues like optimization, bug fixes, and other pressing issues.
