The next Xbox One update is slated for a release early January. The game has seen success, as it's the fourth most played Xbox game, but its performance has been rough.

Over 1.5 million accounts have been banned from PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds by BattlEye anti-cheat, the company has announced. There are two key features coming along with this patch.

The full patch notes for the December 28th PUBG PC update can be found below, along with a short note from the developer explaining the causes behind the difficulties. However, it seems like a Reddit user wasn't really that happy with one of the promotions.

The concept ad, included below, is a clever design that shows a player character from the game walking through a wheat field contained within the console.

Now, Macsterr mentions that his ad concept that there's no copyright over his concept. He wouldn't have been this upset at Xbox or Microsoft were he given credit for the original concept. It's clear that the marketing department is in the wrong here, with an employee obviously lifting the art assets without giving credit to the original designer.

Recently, an ad was posted regarding the bundle on Twitter by the official Xbox twitter handle.

However, Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb, one of the leads in Xbox LIVE has made sure that Macsterr's concerns aren't left unaddressed: "I wanted to let you know that this is being investigated. I'll follow up with the OP /u/macsterr/ once I get more details".
