PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds


PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds game name is one of the most popular right now. The game also was able to reach more than $100 million in revenue with over 4 million players in its early access stage and in just 13 weeks from its release.

Brendan Greene (also known as PlayerUnknown) is the Creative Director of the game was interviewed by Business Insider UK and mentioned that the game had a weird name. Greene answered by saying, “It’s only called ‘PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ because ‘Battlegrounds’ you can’t get a copyright on. You just can’t. So calling it ‘PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ [makes sense] because it was ‘PlayerUnknown’s Battle Royale’ before that. And it’s all caps because it looks better as all caps. No other reason. I’m not shouting it.”

“Yeah it’s a silly name, but f— it!…People are talking about it, that’s the main thing,” added Greene.

Perhaps the unique game name contributes to it being very popular, well aside of course from its amazing gameplay. Since the game name is long and let’s be honest, it could be a mouthful as well, players dubbed it as “PUBG” which is pronounced as “pub-gee” or they sometimes simply call the game “Battlegrounds”. I don’t think anyone would mistake ‘Battlegrounds’ for anything else since it is a very popular game right now.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available for PC and by the end of the year on Xbox One.
