Bluehole Studio’s Changhan Kim has confirmed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Speaking during an interview with Inven, Kim said that the title, which has found great success on the PC and maintains a huge following to this day, will be rolled out for Xbox One’s preview program before being released for the PS4 at some point afterwards.
Due to the fact Sony’s flagship system lacks a early access program, the developer is currently focusing its efforts on the Xbox One version of the game, with Battlegrounds already up and running on Microsoft’s console. However, Kim made it clear that a Battlegrounds PS4 version is in the pipeline.
The news of a PS4 and Xbox One version of the game is perhaps a little surprising, as the studio previously said that it wasn’t planning on bringing the game to consoles until the PC version was fully optimised.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was released via early access for PC in March 2017, and takes the form of a MMO third-person shooter. The game can accommodate up to 100 players to slug it out in a battle royal, essentially a huge deathmatch where the last man standing wins the bout. Each match kicks off with players parachuting onto an island with no items in their possession, and must quickly scavenge for supplies which are randomly distributed throughout each stage before scrapping with other gamers.
