PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) dev Bluehole have stated that the game will no longer receive any updates in regards to actual content or fixes until the official launch of the game. No specific date for version 1.0 has been specified.
Bluehole have stated that they intend to more movement mechanics such as vaulting and climbing to the game. A full stable release version for the Xbox One will also be released at end of 2017.
