In the blog post, PUBG Corp admits that it isn’t satisfied with PUBG’s performance on Xbox One. Improving the performance is a high priority with some changes already implemented.

“Until we are completely satisfied in the quality and reliability of the experience, efforts to optimize performance will be an ongoing hi-priority issue.”
