Here's hoping the delay spells only good things for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. In a recent update that Battlegrounds' creator Brendan Greene posted on Steam, he revealed that the game would have to be pushed back just a bit in order to be completely ready once it's full release comes.

In April is was announced that the game would be releasing around six or seven months after the game first entered Early Access.

"I've come to realize that restricting the window to a specific month could hinder us from delivering a fully featured game and/or lead to disappointment within the community if the launch deadline is not met", Greene explained in a statement on the game's Steam page. PlayerUnknown goes on to confirm the fact that PUBG is being developed with Unreal as opposed to its own engine as one of the factors that will play into a timely release. Greene also made clear that weekly and monthly updates will continue arriving for Battlegrounds as usual.

2017's biggest surprise hit will spend a bit longer in Early Access than had been previously expected. It's the team. It's a matter of honour, you know? If you do not want to buy a game that is in early access then that would make complete sense but it seems that the game is leaving early access sooner than later.

The Pistons parted ways with forward Marcus Morris in exchange for shooting guard Avery Bradley and a future second round pick. By contrast, Bradley will be an unrestricted free agent next summer, and was likely to draw heavy interest around the league.

Even if this game is released on December 31st, for an open-world FPS title of its kind, it would still be a quite remarkable feat.

"Now DayZ are making a new engine, and that's just something which takes time". It's been an enormous success, selling more than four million copies just three months after launch.

Game development is hard. And, while there are no dates given as to when it will be released, players can look forward to two new maps, and a zombies mode as well! A lot of comments in the Reddit believe that the cosmetics will be available after the game leaves Early Access, others believe that a lot of these were placeholders or earlier ideas in the game's development.
