Console versions still planned, as are two new maps
Game Informer did some catching up with developer Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene, responsible for the indie hit PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Given the sheer popularity of the game, it was nice to get some clear-cut plans for the future.
According to Greene, the console versions are still on track, but only after the PC edition is completely done and they’re past the early access state. That includes adding two new maps (one of which is a desert near Peru), and a campaign mode. He explains that while there’s “no serious lore,” that he’s experimenting with a Watch Dogs style of story, with co-op involved. All of that will probably come way down the line, if at all though.
I’m enjoying Battlegrounds for sure, but I wonder what its staying power will be like. With so many survival projects popping up like daisies, folks just keep swarming from game to game.
