With the release of the Xbox One X this fall, this year is shaping up significant for Microsoft's gaming efforts. While the focus lies of new hardware releases, one of this year's biggest success stories, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, is also on track to hit Xbox One in the months ahead.
Following the announcement of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Xbox One version at E3, news on its release has been scarce. With a console debut still slated in 2017, only two months remain to stay on target, however, a firm release date is yet to be unveiled.
In a post to Twitter, Xbox marketing manager, Aaron Greenberg has now teased "exciting news" related to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds as a part of Paris Games Week. Alongside an image of creative director, Brendan Greene and executive producer Chang Han Kim, the tweet teases an upcoming announcement for the days ahead, followed by "대박," a Korean phrase used to express awe.
Despite being intentionally vague, it's safe to assume that a firm date for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Xbox One debut will be unveiled in the days to come. However, due to its ambiguity, keep an open mind that the news could touch on another aspect of the Xbox One release.
Once PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hits Xbox One, the game will release as a part of Xbox Game Preview – a program that allows developers to release games on the console in an in-progress state. The game will also be launched with enhancements to take advantage of the additional resources of the Xbox One X, with 4K and HDR support as expected features.
