Previously it's been revealed that the company are pursuing both options, but that was before PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, appeared at the Xbox conference at E3 earlier this year to reveal that the game would be landing on Xbox One as a "console exclusive". While Microsoft is publishing the game when it comes to its console, a move that's led to speculation about how long Xbox will have the exclusive, a recent Bloomberg interview with PUBG's developer, Bluehole, confirmed that they're looking for a bit more than just the Xbox.

According to Bloomberg, individuals familiar Bluehole and Microsoft are reporting that Microsoft is in talks with Bluehole to extend the exclusivity period for PUBG.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is slated to hit the Xbox One later this year, and is now available in early access on Steam at $29.99 United States dollars. Giants such as Sony Corp. and Tencent Holdings Ltd. are clamoring for rights to put the title on consoles and mobile phones. "We have nothing further to announce at this time", a spokesperson said. Microsoft has refused to comment on the issue.
