PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Could Still Come To PS4

A recent article from UK publication Daily Express has been making the rounds claiming that the game will remain an exclusive for the Xbox One. This is the quote in full:

"We also found out that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is NOT coming to PS4 but will instead remain an Xbox One exclusive."

However, we reached out to Bluehole Studios and received a statement from the developer's spokesperson that refutes that claim:

"We're excited to announce that PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is coming to Xbox One. We're always looking at various platforms to potentially introduce our game, but have nothing further to announce at this time."

Obviously, this is not an ironclad declaration that the game will come to other platforms, but it is a refutation of the Daily Express's statement that the game will remain an Xbox One exclusive.

Our Take
Microsoft's language about exclusives during its E3 conference was confusing, so it's not surprising that the news of PUBG being an "exclusive" has sent mixed messages. Still, it's good to know that a multi-platform console release is still on the table.
