PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, or PUBG for short, was once the almighty king of the Battle Royale scene; but after the introduction of newer games, such as Fortnite, Apex Legends, or most recently, Call of Duty: Warzone, it was quickly dethroned.

Shroud is the biggest streamer in the PUBG community


To add fuel to the flame, the game also suffers from countless issues and bugs, while the developer Bluehole gradually loses its popularity among the players. Went online just a few days ago, Season 7 of PUBG still shows no sign of recovery, despite the constant content updates. This raises a concern about whether the game can get back on the race once again. Shroud recently shares his perspective of the game future.

Shroud, a popular streamer in the PUBG community, has also been neglecting the game. He now streams the beta version of Valorant, a multiplayer shooter from Riot Games - the famed creator of League of Legends. According to Dexerto, when asked about PUBG’s prospect by a viewer during his stream, Shroud responded by stating that a sequel is the game’s only hope.  ‘It’s very unlikely for it to boost back up in viewers and players. I’ve been saying this for a while: I think the best bet for PUBG is to make a PUBG 2, or a different game, or something’, he said. 

Shroud claims that PUBG 2 is the only hope for Bluehole

It’s a quite hurtful statement, for Shroud may be implying that PUBG can never make a full recovery, regardless of whether its current problems are fixed. 

Creating a sequel is entirely possible, but Bluehole doesn’t show any intention of entirely re-allocating support on PUBG to create a new one. Provided that they did so, PUBG still has to face fierce competition. Fortnite, Apex Legends, and CoD: Warzone have continued to capture the players’ attention with interesting mechanics. Therefore, if PUBG 2 wants to be on the map again, they should have something new under their sleeves.
