    The developers of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds did confirm that they would be working on the Xbox and Playstation versions of the game but they did mention that they are prioritizing the PC version first. The problem with this is that due to the many bugs in the PC version, it may take a long while before they can concentrate on bringing this popular and growing game to the Xbox One and PS4. It shouldn't be too much of a difficult task as the game engine used for the game ensures it can be easily ported to different platforms.

    I think the PC version may take time because the game has it's set of bugs and complexity. I do think this should stay on console as long as possible. And then if they get enough demand they can always port to PC and Linux. But as of now I don't see many PC users for this. It'd be good to have it on PC though.

    They've said they wont seriously start work on the console version till the PC one is up and running. So you have at least 6 months as that's how long they said they'd be in early access.

    I have also heard about its comsole version.The version of PC is still under co struction and it will take more time for release.It is not easy to make a version in a few days.The console version will definitely take many months to release on consoles.

    I give atleast 1 year for the update. I am not sure if the consoles are going to be their priority as of now. I am guessing HD is in their priority list right now. So that may take some time for the consoles and PC too.

    I heard about this news. It may take a while since the PC version has a lor of bugs. I'm actually excited about the console version because I think that it is much easier to play it in Ps4.

    It's out on Xbox but there are many reported issues when it comes to their FPS. The marshmallow texture is also present in the ported version. This could be caused by the slow hard drive speeds of Xbox.
