    Pan hammer.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds comes out on PlayStation 4 in December - one year after it hit Xbox One as a timed console exclusive.

    Video game analyst Daniel Ahmad took to ResetEra to say the battle royale game was coming to Sony's console next month, and Eurogamer understands this to be true.

    PUBG's arrival on PS4 doesn't come as a huge surprise, after it was leaked by the Korean ratings board and, more recently, Sony's servers spat out PUBG images (as spotted by a user on PSNProfiles).

    Meanwhile, Microsoft has teased "big PUBG news" for its XO18 event, which kicks off this Saturday, 10th November. I doubt it'll be to announce the PS4 version during Microsoft's main event. Perhaps a new map?



    In more bizarre PUBG news, the game has an unexpected Suicide Squad crossover, which means you can play wearing the Joker or Harley Quinn skins. Yum.



    Fortnite, with its recent playable Thanos event, aligning itself with Marvel and PUBG going with DC Universe makes a lot of sense to me for some reason.

    Martok-
    Going by Steam charts it's still played by around 1 million players daily though that has dropped from its peak of 3 million at the beginning of 2018. No idea on XBox numbers. That's a lot more than game like Warframe which has around 100k players daily though interestingly with Warframe player numbers are continually increasing (it was around 18-20k in 2013-2014) and that will likely rise further when Fortuna is released.

    I do think that the Battle Royale genre is getting oversaturated. Fortnite is the current champion but with H1Z1, PUBG and the upcoming CoD Black Ops 4 Blackout, BFV Firestorm and other games trying to jump on the bandwagon, at some point people will get fed up of the genre and move onto something else.
