PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds has peaked with a massive 3,106,358 concurrent players on the PC platform.
That’s a huge Steam jump and doesn’t even include the numbers currently playing PUBG on Xbox One.
To put those numbers into perspective, the game broke DOTA 2’s previous high of 1,291,328 users back in September, and has shown no signs of slowing down.
In a recent interview, Chang Han Kim, CEO of PUBG Corp, confirmed that the PUBG PS4 release is still pretty far away.
He also told Invenglobal.com that PlayStation’s lack of an early access program means that there will be further limits on when it may reach the PS4 console.
“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,” Kim revealed.
“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.”
From what was said here, it would make sense that PUBG on PS4 will not be arriving until it’s completed on Xbox One.
And there’s currently no set release date for the Xbox One either, meaning it could a solid amount of time before we see talk of a fully playable PS4 version.
The Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds can now play Squad mode as a one, two and three person team without matchmaking.
The patch, which is available now, doesn’t require a game update and won’t take the game offline.
The latest patch follows a recent update that addresses in-game lag.
“We have deployed a small patch to reduce the character position readjustment issue and further reduce intermittent in-game lag,” Bluehole explains.
The developer also released a server side patch that addresses an in-game crash.
