It was announced at E3 2017 that the “battle royale” smash hit PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds would be coming to Xbox One. Today at Gamescom 2017 in Germany, PlayerUnknown himself discussed the upcoming release of Battlegrounds on Xbox One and the studio’s new partnership with Microsoft.

PUBG will be making its way to Xbox consoles as a part of Xbox Game Preview in late 2017. The game’s Executive Producer, Chang Han Kim, shared the following about Bluehole’s new partnership with Microsoft.

“By partnering with Microsoft, our team believes that we will be able to accelerate console development, while maintaining quality across all platforms, as well as giving us access to vast sales, marketing and publishing resources that will help us reach new fans to welcome to the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds universe.

We are excited to continue and further strengthen our partnership with Microsoft and are super excited to meet the Xbox community.  We will be launching exclusively on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program later this year and we can’t wait to see all the Xbox fans on the battlefield.” – CH Kim, Executive Producer

It was also stated during the Gamescom Xbox presentation that Bluehole’s goal is to develop the PC and Xbox versions of PUBG simultaneously, maintaining the same gameplay and experiences across all platforms.

On Steam alone the title has seen exponential growth, having just surpassed 7 million sales.
