"If we have the opportunity, the final goal would be to launch the title on every platform", Chang Han Kim told Inven Global in an interview.

PUBG is now available via early access on Xbox One, meaning that the game is continually being developed.

Obviously, Kim is referring to the pending PS4 launch of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is now on the backburner because of the console's lack of a "Game Preview" program like the Xbox One. Dota 2, the current title in second place on the list only topped out at 1.29 million players at one time, a slightly impressive margin to say the least. Unlike Sony, Microsoft will happily offer in-development games on the store, the same way Steam has been doing with Early Access. It's an Xbox-exclusive for now but the possibility that Playerunknown's Battlegrounds for PS4 may arrive at some point in the future has not been ruled out by the CEO of the title's developer PUBG Corp.

The system is implemented in many online games to detect and ban cheaters, including Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege and Fortnite's Battle Royale mode.

On other related news, "PUBG" managed to break its own record after surpassing the three million mark of concurrent players on Steam before 2017 ended.

Microsoft has pulled an advertisement for the Xbox One version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds after a fan claimed the company copied their artwork.

PlayStation does not have a pre-release program like Steam and Xbox, so the game will have to be fine tuned and ready for a full launch before PS4 players will be able to have a shot at winning a chicken dinner.

So don't expect the game on the PlayStation 4 any time soon.
