PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will get cross-play support toward the beginning of October. PUBG players on Xbox One and PS4 will almost certainly match and play against one another. Test servers will be the first to offer cross-play in late September, with standard PUBG servers expected to get the update toward the beginning of October.
Microsoft uncovered the PUBG cross-play support during its Xbox Inside stream at Gamescom prior today, and it’s restricted to comfort cross-stage play so PS4 and Xbox One players won’t coordinate against PC players. “Our first objective with cross-stage play was for 100 players from both comfort networks to have the option to play in a similar match,” clarifies Cecilia Lee, Community Manager at PUBG Corporation. “Our subsequent objective was to improve our matchmaking times, which we hope to be shorter for because of the more extensive matchmaking pool.”
PUBG is the most recent in a line of top games that are empowering cross-spare and cross-play support. The boundaries to cross-play backing were brought down a year ago, after Sony, in the long run, threw in the towel on both Fortnite and Rocket League cross-play with another approach change. Bungie is likewise empowering cross-save money on Destiny 2 this week, and we’re hoping to see cross-play for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare later on, as well.554
