PUBG Development Team Reveal Leaderboards Will Be Offline for One Week

In six months since its Early Access launch, PUBG saw over 10 million copies sold, with no word as to when the full game is expected to release.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has already secured its place as one of the most successful games on PC, knocking DOTA 2 off the top spot for most concurrent players ever at 1,291,328 users back in September.
If you haven't topped the leaderboards in PUBG yet, you're about to have a pretty rough go of it after the reset.
The game continues to sell amazingly well, and is close to hitting two million unique players. Over the last 30 days, however, PUBG peaked at 1.98 million.
The concept of the game revolves around the popular Battle Royale film from Japan where you are left on an Island with a group of people and have to survive among them by killing the others.
As one of the fastest growing titles of 2017, PUBG first broke onto the gaming scene in March with the launch of its 'Early Access' program on Steam.
It also looks like Microsoft could be maneuvering to ensure PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds will remain a console exclusive on the Xbox platform. That'll give the developers a week to stabilise the game before beginning another season.
On October 10th, the development team released a statement mentioning that in-game leaderboards will be shut down until October 17th in order to make 'back-end improvements' due to the rapid increase of concurrent users, which will force the team to miss their original start date of October 11th.
While it is now available on PC, "PUBG" will soon debut on Xbox One.
Microsoft declined to comment on whether it was in talks to extend the exclusivity. "We have nothing further to announce at this time", a spokesperson said.
