About a couple of months ago, an official listing on the Korean Ratings Board’s website pointed to the possibility of Bluehole Studio’s battle royale game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, getting a PS4 release. Now, it looks as if the evidence for PUBG‘s PlayStation 4 port continues to grow, as Content-ID for the title and images of the game have apparently shown up on the PlayStation Store, potentially indicating that its launch on the platform is imminent.
According to a user posting on the PSNProfiles forum, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is supposedly already on Sony Interactive Entertainment’s servers, leading some to speculate that Bluehole is preparing to launch PUBG on PS4 at some point in December 2018. What’s more is that Niko Partners’ industry analyst, Daniel Ahmad, seems to have insider information on the matter, as he chimed in on a ResetEra forum to say, “It’ll be out next month, yeh [sic].”
Since Bluehole and PUBG Corp. have yet to officially confirm that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is indeed coming to PlayStation 4 next month, it’s best for gamers awaiting its arrival on the console to hold off on popping open any champagne bottles just yet. Even though there’s a good chance that PUBG will finally be coming to PS4 at the end of this year, there’s also the possibility of unforeseen issues occurring in between then and now that could cause delays.
Should the aforementioned details be accurate, then it will be interesting to see just how PS4 players as a whole will respond to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds coming to the system. There’s no doubt that its appearance on the console has been anticipated for quite some time. However, with so many other battle royale products populating the market at the moment and garnering a lot of attention in the process–namely Fortnite and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Blackout mode– it’s a wonder if PUBG coming to PS4 could be a tad too late for the title to catch on with the PlayStation crowd.
