Microsoft to Publish PUBG on XBox One But What About PS4?

Xbox One X is Microsoft's leading 4K gaming console but it isn't expected to lead the sales this holiday season.

Player-Focused Metagame Tools: Leaderboards and statistics plus replays and spectator mode tools are coming after Early Access launch.

We spoke to Xbox's Alan Greenberg at Gamescom, where we were able to talk about the nature of their partnership with PUBG developers Bluehole. Currently, the game is in Early Access, but it enjoys unprecedented success.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now available in Early Access only on Steam but over the next few months will be exclusive to Xbox One consoles, after that it seems that the title could also come on PlayStation 4 but there is now no information on that version.

"Our goal is to deliver the best Battle Royale experience to a global audience and our partnership with Microsoft will allow us to do just that", said Chang Han Kim, VP of Bluehole, Inc and Executive Producer for PUBG. Back at E3, Microsoft said PUBG will be released on Xbox One as a "console launch exclusive", and that wording suggests it may not be permanently exclusive to Xbox One.

The game - which is now in early access on PC - was revealed as a "console launch exclusive" for the Xbox One back at E3. The height of the buildings alone can create a lot of opportunities for players trying to lie low as they wait to see where the circle goes next, and all the windows and possible vantage points will spice up the sniping game.

"It's the number one most-watched game, it's the flawless fit for Xbox, and the integration of being able to stream and create content using Mixer, because it's such a watchable game, really fits for us too".
