PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has been the major talk of the PC community nowadays, with positive feedbacks from players as the game is currently an Early Access title on Steam. It has already sold two million copies in less than a month and the numbers are expected to grow, which prompted discussions of a console release, namely for PlayStation 4. It might still be early days, but the development team is very much open to the idea.

According to South Korean portal Inven, producer Kim Chang-han suggests that a PS4 version is definitely on the cards. With that said, it won’t be happening anytime soon since the PC version is still in Early Access, though it’s good to know that they are working on it.

In case you are unaware of what PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is all about, it puts you into a large scale deathmatch battle with up to a hundred players on the map. The objective is to be the last man standing, and players can opt for free-for-all servers or team up with others. Lead designer Brendan Greene is in charge of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which explains the hype for an Early Access title, considering Greene was involved in the makings of DayZ: Battle Royale and H1Z1: King of the Kill.

If you can’t wait that long for a console release, then maybe you should try out PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Steam, which will be an indication of how good the final product will be, and whether it’s worth joining the hype train when it does launch for the PS4.
