One of the most prominent figures in gaming this year is arguably Brendan Greene, also known as PlayerUnknown, which is an accolade well deserved given the meteoric rise in popularity of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. He has naturally been subject to numerous interviews, and in the latest issue of gamesTM, he discusses the imminent launch of PUBG on Xbox One and Xbox One X.
Regarding the game coming to the Microsoft platform, he stated:
Xbox is synonymous with gaming, you know what I mean? And there’s a huge player base out there that prefer to play on console, so bringing it to the Xbox One systems is just great.
He continues to discuss how it feels to have a game on the console platform, and where their focus lies:
It’s like I can finally say yup, I have a game on Xbox. So I think we could see incredible numbers on console, but again, I don’t want to jinx it. We’re more focused on getting a good game out. Like, as much as it sounds a bit shitty, we’re not focused on player numbers. Sure, from a server point of view we have to be, but that’s what our goal here is. It’s not to have millions of players, our goal is to put a good game onto both platforms.
What will also be good news for fans who own the Xbox One X that released recently, is that Greene also confirmed that the game will run at 60 FPS on the new console, whilst it will be limited to 30 FPS on the regular Xbox One, though they will be trying to push for 60.
