A PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) PS4 release is getting closer as developer Bluehole reveals it’s currently in discussion with Sony.
Speaking with Bloomberg, company founder Chang Byung-gyu, says that he’s planning a PS4 release after the launch of the Xbox One version.
The report states: “Chang says his company has had talks with all of the major console companies about bringing PUBG to a broader audience. Microsoft Corp. will launch the title exclusively on Xbox later this year. Bluehole is in talks with Sony about introducing a version for the PlayStation after that.”
The multiplayer online battle royale game has had an extremely positive reception since its release on Steam’s early access program. PUBG involves up to one hundred players fighting for survival on an island where the last player standing wins.
A PUBG PS4 release was confirmed to be on the cards earlier this year, but Bluehole has been focusing on the Xbox One launch.
The MMO shooter sees players scavenging for supplies before attempting to take out other players. Check out the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to see the game in action.
Epic Games recently released Fortnite: Battle Royale, which shares some similarities with PUBG, which recently had one million players on launch day.
It’s no wonder Bluehole are advancing talks for a PS4 version.
