Inaugural Season for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to Finish With $2M Global Championship

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds- coming soon to PS4 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – coming soon to PS4

PlayStation 4 owners could soon be tucking into a hearty chicken dinner, or perhaps turkey given the rumoured release date of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.

Ever since Fortnite hit the big time many have assumed that interest in rival PUBG has fallen away, but while it's not quite as popular as it was it's still one of the most played games in the world at the moment.

On Monday, members of video gaming forum ResetEra unearthed a post from October in a separate PlayStation forum called PSNProfiles, wherein a user claimed that PUBG was in their PS4's game database.

They also dug up two promotional images for it, which they say are hosted on Sony's servers.

PUBG's release on PS4 is seemingly nearing. PUBG has yet to be officially announced for PS4, of course, but a recent Korean board rating indicated that the port is in the works.

Adding fuel to the fire, Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad revealed on ResetEra that PUBG is indeed due for release in December on PS4.

PUBG was at the top of the gaming food chain when it released the early access of the game on Xbox One past year in December.

This ties in nicely with the theory that PUBG developer Bluehole had signed a 12 month exclusivity deal with Microsoft.

PUBG was launched as a console exclusive on Xbox One a year ago when it launched as Early Access.

The other game Xbox One users can download on the house is Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, the latest game in the long-running series from Konami. The Xbox One version of PUBG rolled out version 1.0 back in September, about 10 months after the PC version did the same thing.
