Looks like PUBG may be coming to PS4 in December:

''The user has found reference to the game title and even images of it, featuring the iconic logo of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

“It's confirmed that PUBG is coming to PS4. it's in my PS4 Game Database. Don't know when it's coming out, but it's already on Sony servers, hosting the game image and Content-ID for the psn store,” he said on PSN Profilers forums.

On top of that, analyst and ResetEra user ZhugeEX confirmed that the release is happening in December.

That would be one year after the original Xbox One launch, which we were already informed was just a timed exclusive."

It wasn’t timed exclusive though. Sony doesn’t do Game Preview/Early Access. The devs also said they didn’t have the man power to make it right away anyway.

I can't imagine they wouldn't already be advertising it if it came out that soon, but you never know, I guess...

So timed exclusive for a year. Pretty much what everyone figured.

Maybe they're still under a gag order.

I'm not sure how much PS4 owners will care, at this point. The reactions I've seen have been ho-hum.

PUBG hits PS4 in December

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds comes out on PlayStation 4 in December - one year after it hit Xbox One as a timed console exclusive.

Video game analyst Daniel Ahmad took to ResetEra to say the battle royale game was coming to Sony's console next month, and Eurogamer understands this to be true.

PUBG's arrival on PS4 doesn't come as a huge surprise, after it was leaked by the Korean ratings board and, more recently, Sony's servers spat out PUBG images (as spotted by a user on PSNProfiles).

They did with fortnite though.... but that isn't really a real game so maybe that's why they gave it a pass idk

Is that official? My guess is/was it launch match day or the one after of its Xbox counter part.

Do wonder if there’ll be crossplay?

Prolly would have more impact if COD hadn't already released with their own BR (mode) game.

Yeah, at this point I don't think it's really all that big a deal, especially when you have a couple more polished BR games at this point.

PS4 has even slower CPU than Xbox One and PS4 Pro has a slower CPU than One X. This is a CPU bound game. The game runs like dog s*** on Xbox One and One X. Good luck.

I wonder how much they lost from making it exclusive. They sacrificed access to 2/3 of their potential customers, and by the time the year elapses, few in that console audience care anymore. They've latched on to other and better games in the meantime. I suppose they'll still get a million or two sales anyhow, though.

Was there ever really any doubt? I bet the developers couldn't wait to get it on PS4. The biggest install base. Fans who will appreciate a solid online shooter. You're competing against a slew of shooters on Xbox because that's 85% of the library over there. If there's a brand that can make PUBG popular again it's the PlayStation brand.

I know right, it’s not like we had some sort of physical sign indicating it’s future to let the world know
