Playerunknown's Battlegrounds launching on console exclusive to Xbox

One of the current sensations in the gaming world is Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, an enormous battle royale game where lots go in, only one survives. And it's coming to console later this year, exclusive to Xbox One!

We didn't get much else from the very brief presentation at the #XboxE3 event in LA, just that it's coming in late 2017 and the console launch will be an Xbox only affair. That doesn't necessarily mean it'll always be an Xbox exclusive, but at least for launch, it most certainly will be.

Better still, an update after launch will bring optimizations for the brand new Xbox One X console, presumably with better visuals and supporting 4K resolution. It's taking the world by storm and it's going to be a great addition to the Xbox One lineup for sure!
