Despite the release of Fortnite, the failed attempt the steal PUBG's crown, and a host of server issues, the game continues to grow faster and faster. PUBG, which is published by Bluehole, is very close to hitting two million concurrent players. PUBG peaked with 1.96 million players this weekend, compared to 716k for its closest challenger Dota 2.
Therefore, it does not come at a surprise that Microsoft is reportedly planning to extend its PUBG exclusivity period, which would be disappointing for Sony. It's suggested that Xbox One would have exclusive console rights to the game until the middle of next year, or maybe even longer! Meaning that the PS4 version will be delayed until late 2018. PUBG will be released later this year on Xbox One.
