In an interview with Business Insider, Bluehole Studios developer Brendan Greene spoke on behalf of their studios widely popular PC game; PlayerUknown’s Battleground. One of the topics in the interview was if the studio had any plans for a console version—Greene responding with the following “we have a team working already on looking to port it to at least the Xbox One,” while the team is “looking at both consoles of course”. Since the start of its PC Early Access, the game immediately became an instant hit with gamers which later saw popular streamers from both Twitch and Youtube loving its fresh new take on the survival genre.
Incorporating a game that features a 100 player server is no easy task however—especially when trying to emulate the same run results from PC to console. Nonetheless, it would be great to see the game fully feature on console with some exceptions being removed for a better run result. PC players have expressed their frustrations with countless issues in the game, its primary being server lag that plagues much of their match—which has become for many an already common factor when playing the game. Players have also had issues with Cheaters in their servers and feel little has been done in resolving this nasty issue.
With no more further details on when we’ll be seeing the game make its jump on consoles, we now know there are plans its going to happen sometime in the future. Although the PC version isn’t yet officially completed, Bluehole are expecting the game to be completely finished in the next five months. So this has many wondering that a possible console launch could happen before the end of 2017—fingers-crossed.
