In a recent story published by Bloomberg Technology, the founder of the development studio behind PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds said that he is currently in talks with console companies to bring the phenomenon of a game to more systems.
In a talk that centered on the creation of the critically acclaimed game and also touched on its surprising rise to stardom, Chang Byung-gyu – the founder of South Korean game developer Bluehole Inc. – said that the company has had talks with all major console companies about bringing PUBG over to their system.
The Xbox One is already expected to see a version of the game release later this year, but what’s interesting is that Chang said that Bluehold is also in talks with Sony about introducing a version for the PlayStation sometime after that. Nothing else was said in the piece, but it will likely be music to some players ears that the studio is at least active in trying to bring the hit game to the PlayStation 4.
Elsewhere in the article, it’s revealed that since the explosion of PUBG, Bluehole Inc. is now worth 5.2 trillion won ($4.6 billion), which is an insane 5x increase in just three months.
