PUBG might not have been the first battle royale game, but it is almost certainly the title that popularised the genre.
But despite breaking Steam player records and proving a massive sales hit on Xbox One, there’s a creeping feeling that the Battlegrounds bubble is starting to burst and that Fortnite is the new king of the hill.
The shift in popularity from PUBG to Fortnite is reflected in a recent poll held by Express Online.
More than 70k readers voted in our poll to identify the most popular battle royale game between Fortnite and Battlegrounds.
At the time of writing (and the poll is still open in case you disagree), PUBG has 49% of the votes, compared to 51% for Fortnite.
With PUBG updates somewhat drying up as of late, and Fortnite content releasing by the bucketload, it may not come as much of a surprise that the balance of power is shifting.
The latest Fortnite update introduced a brand new Hunting Rifle weapon, not to mention the new Lucky Landing point of interest for Battle Royale.
Fans were originally expecting a new jetpack item to be released, although this ended up being delayed.
According to Epic Games, the Jetpack had a few last minute design issues and had to be pushed back.
The jetpack will now launch at a later date.
PUBG fans, meanwhile, have just been treated to a new Xbox One update.
Battlegrounds update 9 adds DVR support for Xbox One. Enabled in the settings menu, DVR will automatically record gameplay clips.
Bluehole has also fixed a ton of bugs and introduced new localisation options.
The only downside is that there’s still no sign of the Miramar desert map. Hopefully we should find out the release date during the Bluehole developer roadmap.
