Rumor : Microsoft in Talks to Extend Battlegrounds Console Exclusivity

Header

Bloomberg reported earlier today that people familiar with the relationship between Microsoft and Bluehole, the Korean developer for this year’s surprise hit PUBG, have said that Microsoft is looking to extend its exclusivity to the Xbox platform. No specific details were given and thus this is nothing but a rumor at the moment, but given the popularity of the title, we felt it worth commenting on.

Our Take

We’ve discussed PUBG at length in our recent Bitcasts and Porshapwr has commented before how he wouldn’t be surprised to see Microsoft go more aggressively after lifetime console exclusivity given the title’s popularity. One way or another, we’ll know in the next couple of months with the title expected to land on the Xbox One before the end of the year.
