If you are already connected to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, don’t close the game because you may have issues getting back online. Bluehole Studio, the developer responsible for the popular last-person-standing shooter, revealed on social media that the servers for Battlegrounds are experiencing technical issues.
The servers are down, and we are investigating it. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Bluehole didn’t specify what the problems are, but it is working on getting Battlegrounds up and back online.
This outage is not affecting everyone equally. Some players are able to get online with almost no issues. Others are encountering repeated error messages.
Update at 2:15 a.m. PDT: The servers are starting to come back online.
