Microsoft Publishing Xbox One Version of PUBG, Exclusivity Unknown

PUBG Sounds Like It May Not Be Xbox One-Exclusive Forever

All in all, it sounds like Xbox One players have a lot to look forward when PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds releases on the console later this year.

News came out of Gamescom 2017 revealed an extension of the partnership between Bluehole and PLAYERUNKNOWN.

Phil Spencer, the Xbox Head, said that the utmost goal of Microsoft was to provide the global audience with the best Battle Royale experience.

Bluehole Studio have announced that their standalone Battle Royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be published by Microsoft for the Xbox One version and arrive later this year.

Now Microsoft, the publisher for PUBG has announced that the third-person shooter has passed eight million copies sold, a ridiculously huge number for a game that's in early access - and that's PC alone. Currently, the game is in Early Access, but it enjoys unprecedented success.

Microsoft's been asked if this equate to an exclusivity arrangement, but has so far been less than informative. If the title stays restricted to Xbox One, the company will reap some substantial benefits. There is no telling if the PUBG will follow the same scenario. The general optimization of the game for all players is likely to undergo some alterations. I was convinced that console exclusive meant timed exclusive when I heard the announcement, but after hearing that PUBG is getting some technical dev assistance from PUBG, I'm not entirely convinced. The final version will be released in early 2018. Shadowplay Highlights can intelligently capture and save different types of moments or interactions during rounds and makes them available to the player to view, trim, and share via social media from within the game.
