PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds developer and CEO of PUBG Corporation, Chang Han Kim, wants to bring the title to “every platform,” but makes it clear it will stay an Xbox One exclusive for now.
Chang Han Kim was recently featured in an interview with Inven Global where he discussed the pre-release systems present Steam’s Early Access and Microsoft’s Game Preview present on Xbox One and how they don’t have quality restriction, since they are main purpose is to help developers shape the game properly. He continued to mention how the situation is different with Sony’s platform, since they are “very strict” regarding the quality of titles present on their platform.
As it’s going to be an exclusive title on Xbox One for some time, 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.
Early Access on Steam and Game Preview on Xbox One are like pre-release, so they don’t have a restriction on quality. However, PS is very strict about this. There were cases where a game took 6 months more to launch even when it was already completed. We are still in the stage of learning the console development environment and console gamers’ taste. We need to think about other platforms after evaluating and completing the Xbox One version first.
