The developer of the biggest game of 2017 (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), PUBG Corp, is looking to go all in when it comes to ports on platforms other than PC.
The CEO of PUBG developer PUBG Corp, Chang Han Kim, said in a recent interview that he hopes the game will one day be available on "every platform". Not only that, but he also spoke about how his personal aim is for PUBG to become a "universal media franchise" that could extend beyond games into TV and movies and more.
Chang Han Kim, CEO of PUBG Corp, reiterated that the game will be exclusively available on Xbox One “for some time”, but also stated that part of the reason why it hit Xbox One first is because of Game Preview. Unlike Sony, Microsoft will eagerly offer "in-development" games on the store, the same way Steam has been doing with Early Access.
[…] we’d like to focus on completing the Xbox One PUBG for now. If we have the opportunity, the final goal would be to launch the title on every platform Chang Han Kim told Inven Global in an interview.
Kim added that the studio is still learning how to develop for consoles, and beginning to understand console gamers’ tastes. Whatever platform comes next, it won’t happen before the Xbox One version is finished.
