PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Fortnite, the two most popular battle royale shooters on the planet, have been locked in a battle for concurrent player supremacy for nearly a year. Now the two may have to duke it out in court. That's because PUBG Corp., a subsidiary of Bluehole, has filed a lawsuit in South Korea against Fortnite developer Epic Games over alleged copyright infringement. The lawsuit arrives as PUBG has seen its number of concurrent players on Steam cut in half, going from more than 3 million users in December of last year to around 1.5 million users currently. Meanwhile, the last update from Epic Games had Fortnite peaking at over 3.4 million concurrent players, which the game... Read more...

PUBG Corp has been surprisingly quiet amid so many games hitting mobile devices, PC, and consoles that focus on very similar Battle Royale modes that it made so popular. So far all that PUBG Corp has done is rail against Epic Games' Fortnite for conflict of interest. That has changed with PUBG Corp. filing suit against a couple mobile games for iOS devices that were published by NetEase. The two games named in the suit are Rules of Survival and Knives Out. The suit was filed in the Northern California U.S. District Court. Both NetEase games have up to 100 players parachuting onto an island. The battles focus on fighting within safe zones that constantly shrink while using military-grade... Read more...
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds took the gaming industry by storm with its addicting battle royal game play, attracting gamers in droves. Unfortunately, there have been some annoying issues, both on the performance side (bugs have been a constant problem) and in terms of cheaters ruining the fun for everyone else. The latter is bound to happen when a game is as popular as PUBG. However, the developer isn't ignoring the issue—PUBG Corp is bringing the ban hammer down hard on over 100,000 players. "We recently discovered a new pattern of cheats in action. This week, we performed a thorough gameplay data review of 10 million players and completed analysis of tens of millions of data logs.

Bluehole struck gold with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the massively popular survival shooter that recently made gaming history by notching more than 3 million concurrent players on Steam. The game has been such a raging success that the developers were spun off into their own company, PUBG Corp, led by CEO Chang-han Kim. While it be tempting to just ride out PUBG's success by focusing on its current course, Kim has bigger plans—he wants to see PUBG launched on every platform. That most notably includes the PlayStation 4, where PUBG has not yet manifested. It could also include the Nintendo Switch, though one thing at a time. In a recent interview with Inven Global, Kim specifically pointed... Read more...
