A release date for PUBG for the PlayStation 4 is revealed to be in December, according to a report by ResetEra. If confirmed, PUBG will be coming exactly one year after it hit stores for the Xbox One last year in December.
Daniel Ahmad, a video game analyst corroborated to the rumor on the forum ResetEra, and found references to the game in their console’s database. In addition, they also dug up 2 promotional images for it, which according to them are hosted on Sony’s servers. Along with these images, the user also found content IDs for both the North American and the European stores.
The arrival of PUBG on the PS4 is no surprise since it was expected from a long time that it would be coming. The delay could only mean that the one year Xbox One exclusive deal s nearing its end which allows the game an entrance in the PlayStation world.
The news comes after the developer of PUBG; Bluehole, revealed its brand new eSports plans next January. The inaugural season of the PUBG global pro competition sees a host of regional teams compete to be named the best squad in the world.
Bluehole adds that the competition will be in 3 different phases that will culminate with the Global Championship.
After Phases 1 and 2, the top teams from each region will compete head-to-head in third-party-hosted global events, followed by a global All-Star Games.
At the end of Phase 3, the top-performing teams throughout the season will gather for a Global Championship – the survivors of which will have a shot at a $2 million prize pool and the right to call themselves the best PUBG players in the world.
The different regions include:
- North America
- Europe/Middle East/ Africa
