E3 2017: Playerunknown's Battlegrounds On Xbox One Coming This Year

Console players are getting the Hunger Games-like shooter this year.


Hunger Games-like shooter Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is coming to consoles this year. Microsoft announced during its E3 briefing today that the popular shooter is coming to Xbox One as a "console launch exclusive" in late 2017. That wording suggests it may also come to to PlayStation 4, though not until later, apparently. Those playing on Xbox One X will be able to enjoy 4K and HDR support.

Playerunknown himself, Brendan Greene, appeared on stage to make the announcement about Battlegrounds' console release. He also revealed that the game has reached 3 million players on PC, where it remains in Early Access.
