PUBG on PS4: “You never know” says game’s creator

You probably already know that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was one of the biggest games of 2017, and there might be a chance of it one day coming to PS4, according to the game’s creator. 

Trusted Reviews asked Brendan Greene, PlayerUnknown himself, whether he was open to the game launching on other platforms.

“In the future you never know where it might go,” Greene said, “Right now we want to get those two platforms [PC and Xbox One] done. Especially with Xbox we really want to get it to a 1.0 state.”

Although the game hit version 1.0 for PC back in December 2017, its Xbox One version remains in Game Preview and lags behind the amount of content seen on PC. For example, on Xbox One you’re still limited to the game’s original Erangel map, with the new desert Miramar map not expected until May.

“It’s early access, so the next ‘x’ number of months we’ll continue to work on [the Xbox One version] until we get to 1.0,” Greene clarified.

Greene’s comments echo what’s been said by the game’s other developers since the game exploded in popularity last year.

Speaking to Business Insider, developer PUBG Corp’s CEO Chang Han Kim said, “We definitely do have plans for other platforms…but no details have been finalised yet.”

With that said, Kim has previously indicated that the developer would like to see the game “on every platform” eventually, but that it will be “an exclusive title on Xbox One for some time.”

It might not be the PUBG on PS4 confirmation that we were hoping for, but Greene’s comments suggest that the game might appear on the console at some point. Until then, you might want to try out Fortnite, which is both free to play and available on PS4 now.
