The 1.0 PC launch for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has not been the smoothest.

At the time of writing, servers for PUBG are down in all regions. This has been the case for about an hour how, and developer PUBG Corp confirmed that it’s aware of the problem and is investigating the cause.

This comes a couple of hours after a few other issues cropped up. Namely, EU servers being at capacity and preventing players from joining matches, as well as a leaderboard issue that prevents match data from being recorded.

Both of these are also on PUBG Corp’s radar, but because servers went down everywhere shortly after, the focus has shifted to first get things back up and running.

Though some launch problems were to be expected given how popular PUBG is, things may have gone a bit too far. We’ll update you when the situation changes.

Update: Servers are back online now in all regions, nearly two hours after the issue was first reported.
