PUBG's Publisher on Xbox One Not Unknown; it's Microsoft

Furthermore, Game Informer contacted Microsoft who responded that, "As we announced at E3, 'PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS' will be a console launch exclusive on Xbox One and right now, the development team is exclusively focused on bringing the best game possible on Xbox One and PC".

The game will make its way to the Xbox One as part of the Xbox Game Preview program later this year, with a final version expected to launch on the console at the start of 2018.

Bluehole has announced a new strategic partnership that will have Microsoft publishing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on the Xbox One. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will put up to 64 players on a remote island for a winner-takes-all showdown where strategic gameplay is as important as shooting skills.

That extra love for a console build will pay off for PS4 players in the end, too, even if they have to wait a year for it. Bluehole, Inc.is still developer and publisher for the Steam version.

Phil Spencer, the Xbox Head, said that the utmost goal of Microsoft was to provide the global audience with the best Battle Royale experience. "We've been huge fans since the very earliest days, and worked hard to bring the game successfully to our E3 briefing".

This new tech would add to a long list of upgrades that the game has seen since it entered early access in March, including a slew of bug fixes and optimizations, and content additions like new weapons and first person-only servers.
