Unfortunately, PUBG's first Xbox patch fails to address the game's major frame rate problems.

While many issues were addressed in PUBG’s first Xbox patch, there’s no mention of any plans to address the frame rate issues that have plagued the game since launch. Players will have to settle for the current workaround to improve PUBG’s frame rate on Xbox One until further notice. 

The community coordinator for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One encourages players to continue providing feedback and concerns about the Xbox version of PUBG on the official PUBG Xbox Forums.
