Game creator Brendan Green announces that Bluehole is officially partnering with Microsoft to enhance the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds experience on Xbox One. He stated that Microsoft’s “wealth of knowledge and experience” would be a great help to PUGB on Xbox.

Green also stated that PUBG is coming to the Game Preview program. He mentioned that it would help keep the game changing to player reactions.

Green decided to withhold the exact release date for the game, but did confirm that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds hit over $8 million in sales recently.

While still scheduled for a late 2017 release, Bluehole is still unsure how long it will take to move PUBG to Xbox. In other news, an update launched a few weeks ago that added Xbox controller support as well as FPS-only severs to the PC.
