Along with the announcement, some members of the PUBG PS4 team in Korea shared some thoughts. 

From Koo Sung Jeong, PS4 Lead Project Manager said;

One of most memorable moments while developing PS4 PUBG was the first time we had 100 people join a test match.

Before the test, the dev team’s mission was to deliver the finished product this year – it was a big challenge and it felt almost impossible.

But as soon as we had 100 people drop in for the test, our confidence started to build and and we pushed ourselves harder to make everything happen. We are proud of the game we have created and can’t wait to get it into your hands!

From Changmin Lee, PS4 Engineering Lead said;

It’s always exciting and tense presenting our work to the players as a developer.

Getting our game into the hands of the PS4 community that haven’t experienced PUBG is a thrill equal to creating a new game.

Everyone on the PS4 dev team have worked passionately on every single moment of the game to create a perfect experience for our players – we hope you all enjoy your journey on getting a chicken dinner!
