The game is currently available on PC and Xbox One, the latter being in Xbox Preview, but the studio has plans to bring the game to PS4. According to PUBG Corp. CEO, they want to bring the game to PlayStation 4 but, Sony is not a fan of early access games.
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.
