Microsoft Is Being Accused Of Plagiarizing Ad For Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds

Microsoft apparently has gotten the idea for an advertisement for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds without providing credit to a redditor with the handle of Macsterr. Macsterr posted an original concept design for an ad for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds a month ago for the popular shooter and his complaint has gone viral on Reddit with 89,000 upvotes at this time of writing.

Microsoft’s current ad for Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is visually similar to Macsterr’s concept ad.

Macsterr’s ad:
macsterr pubg

Microsoft’s ad:
xbox pubg

A representative for Microsoft confirmed that the tweet has been removed from Xbox Twitter account and they are currently investigating the situation. Microsoft Xbox community manager Larry Hryb responded in the Reddit thread stating that they will follow up with Macsterr on this matter.
