Bluehole has delayed the release of its next monthly update for early access battle royale shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
According to the developer, due to a client crash in the internal build of the update, the decision has been made to push back its release date by one week to August 3rd, 2017.

The developer previously revealed that the upcoming monthly update will finally introduce a Field-of-View (FOV) slider to the game along with first-person-only servers. Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene noted that these servers will be restricted to Solo and Duo queues in North America and Europe to begin with, before being expanded to other servers and queues once everything is stable.
Last week it was revealed that Battlegrounds has now surpassed 5 million sales.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC via Steam Early Access, and will be coming to Xbox One this fall.
