Rumour: PUBG is set to Debut on PlayStation 4 this December
Earlier this year, the now somewhat infamous PUBG, has made the headlines after the South Korean rating board has leaked that a PlayStation 4 version of the highly popular battle royale shooter is just around the corner. And logically, I’ve made an assumption that it was going to be unveiled during the Tokyo Game Show, but this has never materialized. And once the aforementioned show’s doors have been shut, PlayStation 4 rendition of PUBG returned to the realms of fantasy – that is until this week.
Numerous outlets have cited Twitter user and industry analyst ZhugeEX too to Resetera to break the news, who is formally known as Daniel Ahmad, as he has seemingly confirmed that the PlayStation 4 version of PUBG is set to hit the shelves just next month. While this rumour should be taken with a pinch of salt, then it has to be said that such release date is rather likely, as the title in question has already appeared on PlayStation’s servers.
When PUBG is going to officially see the light of day remains to be seen. But if it were to launch on PlayStation 4 in a state similar to the Xbox One version of the game, then maybe it would be for the better if it were later, rather than sooner. As unfortunately, the console version of the game still runs rather poorly, and lags significantly behind the PC counterpart. However, anything is possible, especially when big money is involved.
Stay tuned for more PUBG related info, as more is soon to come and unlike the release of the PlayStation 4 version, it is likely to come sooner rather than later, as Xbox is hosting an event on 16th of November. While the developer will surely not announce the release during said event, it is more than likely that it will tease brand new content, which is long past due..
