PUBG might be coming to the PlayStation 4, according to a new report which reveals that after the game launches on Xbox One later this year the developer will be looking to expand their audience even further.
The news comes from a recent profile of Brendan Greene in Bloomberg. In it, the outlet reveals that Bluehole has had talks with all of the major platform holders to bring Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds to different consoles.
So when is PUBG coming to PS4? There was no concrete date revealed that PlayStation fans can lookout for other than “after” the Xbox One version releases later this year.
Bluehole, the developer for PUBG is working directly with Microsoft to get their game on the Xbox as fast as possible. Microsoft has offered Bluehole their development resources to accelerate console development for the game and to maintain quality.
This very well could also accelerate the release date for PUBG on PS4 as well since the platforms are so similar to develop for. Regardless, Xbox will get it first, and it’s unclear whether Microsoft is going to have any timed exclusivity period for the game.
For a game that is still rough around the edges, PUBG has had a hugely successful year. Selling millions of copies in Steam Early Access, PUBG has set a record for most concurrent players on Steam.
The game and concept has been so popular that Epic Games recently beat PlayerUnknown to the console market, releasing Fortnite: Battle Royale as a free to play title.
Regardless, unless talks completely fall through, it sounds like PlayStation 4 owners will be getting PUBG at some point, possibly as early as next year.
