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 will also come to to PlayStation 4, though not until later, apparently.
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.
