Game Publisher Nexon has literally blamed PUBG for their game called Lawbreakers not selling leading to the company suffering a loss of 32 million, with shareholders wanting answers they had to come up with something and this was their reasoning. Nexon’s financial executive Shiro Uemura said “Our results in North America in the third quarter were below our outlook, mainly due to the sales from LawBreakers being below our expectations” and then he went on to say “LawBreakers is a unique FPS developed for core users. We had very high expectations for its launch, however, the timing of its launch turned out to be unfortunate, specifically the blockbuster PC online game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds came out right about the same time, making the market environment very tough for first-person shooters in general and for LawBreakers.”
PUBG has grown at a very rapid rate and a few days ago it was revealed that PUBG has more active players than the next 9 video games on Steam combined. This has not been the first time that PUBG has been blamed for another games misfortunes.
