Microsoft’s executive producer Nico Bihary has confirmed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is set to receive a new map on Xbox One, with the Miramar map coming next month. This map has been available to PC players since mid-December, with Xbox One players having just the default map to play around in.
Bihary made the announcement through his Twitter account, revealing that more exciting news is on the way. Hopefully it be in the form of updates that will make the game more stable on Xbox One, with many players still complaining that the game has a long way to go even for an early access title.
This isn’t all the new information regarding PUBG, as the executive producer also provided some updates on the highly-requested proximity chat feature. It has seemed like this feature had no chance of coming to the game at all at this point, but Bihary said that “We hear the feedback, and for clarity, we are still open to the idea of supporting it on XB1. Lots of UI work to be done if we do bring it to console, therefore its low on the priority list, but definitely not a “never”.”
PUBG is available now on PC and Xbox One, and is still one of the hottest games in the gaming space these days. A new update is set to come to the Xbox One version of the game, with update #12 set for a release next week. While a concrete release date for it hasn’t been given, they did say that it should be out at some point between the 9th and the 12th.
