PS4 players will be getting their hands on PUBG sooner than expected however, as soon as December 2018.
Another motivating factor behind Microsoft's latest move could be the pending release of PUBG on PlayStation 4. Don't know when it's coming out, but it's already on Sony servers, hosting the game image and Content-ID for the psn store.
The battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has received a number of indicators that the now Xbox and PC exclusive title may be headed to the PS4 soon.
"It's confirmed that PUBG is coming to PS4".
Searches for the game's unique PS4 ID code do not bring up any other information at official PlayStation sites, particularly about release dates or prices.
Florida voters restore most former convicts' voting rights
The Initiative seeks to fully restore voting rights to these individuals - except those convicted of murder or sexual assault. The win is a big victory for voting rights and the rights of formerly incarcerated people.
It looks like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is going to be available on PS4 next month, as the game plans its first esports season.
In September the PlayStation 4 version of the game was rated by the Korean Ratings Board, who are known for leaking a lot of games. Microsoft teased on Twitter that it will have some big news around PUBG at its X018 keynote event in Mexico City on November 10 - potentially a new map or game mode.
Therefore, it seems nearly inevitable that a version of the game is in development and will be releasing soon. But, it still remains to be seen as to how Sony announces it. You'd think a game that's barely two months old wouldn't even be discounted in a sale, let alone offered for free, but hey, we're not complaining.
