The battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has received a number of indicators that the now Xbox and PC exclusive title may be headed to the PS4 soon.

PUBG requires an Xbox Live Gold subscription ($9.99/month or $59.99/year) to play because it's a multiplayer shooter while PES 2019 can be downloaded for free but will need a subscription if you want to play with friends online.

In another development, Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad, whom is usually privy to unannounced information, reported through ResetEra that a PlayStation 4 version of PUBG will be out next month, and that it will be an "out now" release revealed at The Game Awards 2018 on December 6. Typically games are not assigned these codes until release is imminent.
