“That’s the Only Thing I’m Scared Of”- Shroud Worried About this Cyberpunk 2077 Feature

From being one of the most popular games in the region, PUBG has now transitioned to a very unfortunate place in North America. As per Shroud, only stream snipers play the game.

“I mean this game is so dead in NA, that the only people that play are pretty much stream snipers. So, I don’t think you guys realize how much the mighty have fallen.” 

Shroud believes that PUBG lost its spark because of bigger and better alternatives. Also, the developers could not alter the game’s look and mechanics because they made it popular in the first place.

“This game is still fun, honestly. I understand why nobody plays it, they’ve moved on to bigger and better things,” said Shroud. “I really do wish they changed it, I wish it was different, but a part of the reason it was so successful is because it’s like this.”
