In a move that’s almost impossible for Fortnite to emulate, PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds) has announced a Resident Evil 2 crossover.
However, it will be on the Android and iOS version of the game. PUBG Mobile is teaming up with Capcom for the crossover event with the Resident Evil 2 remake, reports GameRant.
In a Tweet, they wrote: “The last day of
#PMSC2018 Dubai Finals. What could be more exciting than announcing that PUBG MOBILE is teaming up with @RE_Games! Something is coming very soon. #pubgmobilexre2”
How cool does this look…

We can only wait and see exactly how this will transpire, but we are very excited.
PUBG is still one of the most popular PC games of the year, despite going head-to-head with the likes of free-to-play (sort of) battle royale-focused Fortnite.
The two games have been dominating the PC market, but as Fortnite‘s made its way to pretty much every platform available (including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, iOS and finally Android), it’s getting player numbers that PUBG could really only dream of.

As of now, PUBG is available on Xbox One and is available on mobile, but it’s still nowhere near as accessible as Fortnite.
That might all be about to change though, as PUBG is finally coming to the PlayStation 4 in just a few weeks’ time. Hooray!
Sharing the news across its social media channels, Sony confirmed the announcement with a nice little trailer, which you can check out below. 10/10 to Sony for the Nathan Dark and Ellie skins also.
PUBG will be released on PlayStation 4 on 7th December 2018, with a few different editions to choose from. The base game will set you back $30, “Survivor’s Edition” will sell for $50 and a “Champion’s Edition” will retail for $60.
The two special editions will include bonus G-Coin as well as in-game rewards, and you can put in your pre-order right now.
Not everyone is impressed with the news though, with lots of people claiming PUBG has missed the boat on its console releases.
Responding to Sony, one Twitter used said: “No one cares lmao, PUBG dig their grave when they didn’t release on PS4, blackout is better and 100 times more polished and Fortnite is more fun, soooo PUBG can stay on Xbox lmao even h1z1 for console is better.”

People are also taking issue with the fact that 7th December is the date that Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases, complaining that they won’t be able to buy PUBG because of Smash.
Why the hell are they posting again about this? SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE WILL DESTROY THIS GAME ON ITS RELEASE!!!! pic.twitter.com/f11eHsKsEO
