According to the folks behind PUBG, the intention is to launch the title on every platform as long as the conditions are acceptable. For the time being, however, the game will remain exclusive to the Xbox One on consoles. The CEO of PUBG Corporation also added that while Steam and Xbox One have pre-release programs with minimal restrictions, Sony has very strict quality standards that must be met before such a port can be considered viable.

Mr. Kim issued the following statement on the matter:

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.

We do know that Bluehole Inc. is in talks with Sony to port the game. By the sound of things, it seems as though it may take a while before PS4 players get their hands on the game. As soon as we hear more on this topic, we'll let you know.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now available on PC and Xbox One.
