Good luck getting that to run on Switch both with an acceptable resolution and acceptable frame rate. Their optimization is garb even on the most powerful console.

So I'll play on my Switch at 1 fps? With textures loading in when the game is ending? Nice.

The concept works on mobile with touchscreen controls ffs, battle royale will rule everything soon.

Do they want crossplay too? There's a platform manufacturer out there does seem absolutely intent on limiting their players within their own base.

Given the performance on One X I've managed to capture some footage of the game running on Switch. It's 1080p and a fixed 1fps. Beautiful

Well fortnite is already doing that and eating their lunch. I wouldn't be surprised if Fortnite even came on switch before the ps4 version of pubg even releases

I understand that they want to beat the iron as long as it's red hot,but maybe first fix the problems with the versions that are already out before planning ports?

Since the quote in the OP literally says they want to focus on the Xbox version before this happens, Im ok with this.

It isn't greatly optimised currently sure, but it's a fun ride. Would like it on PS4 eventually

Well duh. They would be really stupid not to cash in on the biggest console userbase with the ps4 at the moment after microsofts timed exclusivity runs out.

Meanwhile the free to play fortnite battle royale will grow and grow and getting all of their money.

No surprise just MS first as preview program then PS4 when the console version hits 1.0 and finally switch if they can get it working on there.

Make it turn based for the switch:
You roam the island and when you see another player the game shift to pokemon style battle.
The pokemon game that anyone wanted is here...

By the time Xbox One exclusivity runs out + dev time for other ports, everyone will have moved on to the next big thing

The humor in this thread...thank you, thank you very much.

They're right about trying to finish the game for the Xbox first, so they can start charging for it.

Oh, wait, that's the reason why I haven't bought it yet.

50 million of sold copies incoming!
PUBG will reach that well before a potential Ps4 release in 2019.
I fond the regional differences and challenges he was talking about the most interesting.

Xbox and PC is not that strong in Japan compared to other platforms, but they obviously don't want to miss out on the third biggest gaming market in the world.
