In the list of big success in the gaming market of 2017, Player’s Unknown BattleGrounds undoubtedly tops the list. With the PC version of the game recently being available for sale, there is no stopping the expansion of the game now.
According to a report published by Gamespot, PUBG CEO and developer, Chang Han Kim in a recent interview, revealed the company’s intention of making the battle royale-style game available in each and every platform soon. Apart from this, he also went on to talk about his goal of ensuring that PUBG becomes a “universal media franchise” that could expand well beyond games. It seems that he means to get his innovation adopted into movies and even TV shows for that matter.
As mentioned previously, PUBG was only recently launched on the PC platform. Until then, it was available in the form of an online download. The developers of the game have even inked a collaboration with Microsoft with the objective to introduce an Xbox One edition as well.
The game is expected to remain exclusive to Xbox One for a really long time. However, not too long if we assume the company’s future plans on the basis of what its CEO recently stated (as mentioned above). “If we have the opportunity, the final goal would be to launch the title on every platform,” Kim reportedly said.
The Xbox One version of PUBG managed to be a major hit amongst its audience, despite of being unfinished. It seems like the company already managed to sell over a million copies in the first forty-eight hours itself. Kim further went on to add that the game has been “selling considerably” since its launch. When speaking about the game’s commercial success, he said that the game is surpassing all their expectations. Let’s see what ends up taking place this year.
