“PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” is on its way to the
PlayStation 4.


  • It looks like “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” the game
    whose success paved the way for “Fortnite: Battle Royale,” is
    coming to the PlayStation 4.
  • The game hasn’t officially been announced, but files
    for the game are present in the PlayStation 4 game database,
    and the online PSN store.

It looks like “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds,” the game that is
largely credited with sparking the popularity of battle royale
shooting games like “Fortnite: Battle Royale,” is set for release
on PlayStation 4.

While Bluehole, the game’s developer, has yet to confirm a PS4
release date, fans have discovered files on

released on PC in May 2017 and has been console exclusive to the
Xbox One since December 2017. The game was in Microsoft’s Xbox

In November of 2017, “PUBG” was averaging 1.3 million players
each day, according to SteamCharts, which tracks
players on
Steam, the most popular platform for PC games. The
