“…Across the Xbox One family of devices.”
So it appears that we finally get a time frame of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds port over to console and it looks like we will be seeing it first for game preview program members late 2017 and everyone else in 2018. Unfortunately for Playstation fans, however, it looks like this popular battle arena game will be exclusive to the Xbox family only. Not sure why Bluehole is doing this, as this will surely anger fans of the game who can’t play it on PC and don’t have an Xbox. Still, this is good news for those that want to play it on console and are not able to experience this awesome game on PC. Check out the press release and trailer below for more.
Per the press release:
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – June 11, 2017 – Bluehole, Inc., announced today from the Microsoft press conference at E3 2017 that PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the first standalone Battle Royale video game with more than three million units sold on Steam, will launch exclusively on Xbox One’s Game Preview Program later this year. The final game will launch in 2018 across the Xbox One family of devices, which includes Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X.
