PUBG Will Run at 60FPS on Xbox One X [Update]

Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene confirmed a higher FPS on the Xbox One X.

Update: Nevermind! It seems like Brendan Greene is walking back his statements on this one. PUBG will run at 30FPS across all Xbox platforms.

Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene just confirmed that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, at least on the Xbox One X, will run at 60FPS. It's something that many of us suspected with Microsoft's most powerful console, but it's good to get a confirmation from the creator himself.

In an interview with gamesTM (via wccftech), Greene confirmed that PUBG will "definitely" run on Xbox One X at 60FPS.

The story is a little different for the standard Xbox One where Greene says the development team "may have to limit it at 30FPS[.]" He adds, "We're still constantly improving it so, you know, the aim is to get to 60." Green mentions that the last time he saw PUBG run on the Xbox One it was running at "about 30 to 40" so the team seems to be trying to push the game on the Xbox One as hard as they can.

Greene does seem to say that, unlike twitch shooters, PUBG isn't wholly dependent on FPS. That's not stopping the developers from trying to hit 60 fps, but it feels like he's readying players for disappointment.

Lastly, Greene talked a bit about 4K textures for PC and Xbox One X telling gamesTM that while 4K textures are in the cards, they still have to make them.

Earlier this year, Microsoft inked a deal to produce PUBG exclusively for the Xbox One. Reportedly Microsoft wants to extend the deal that will ensure PUBG remains exclusive to the Xbox beyond 2018.

PUBG is set to arrive on the Xbox One on December 12.
