Of course, because when you think Sony, the last thing you think is 'singleplayer'. This game is extremely popular. So popular in fact many devs are already adding features to existing games to jump on the bandwagon. Games that exist, like COD, already have their fanbase and so won't change the balance. THIS game could cause a rise in more and more copy cat games and that's what I don't want to see.
There will be articles written about how PUBG changed the landscape of gaming and I'll be sure to post them ...
Sony already jumped on the shooting things = gud bandwagon, even adding pow pow multiplayer to games like Uncharted and Last of Us. Holy shit they even tried to take some of that CoD pie with fucking Motorstorm, lol.
I mean it doesn't matter the genre or mechanics. A game sells over 30,000,000 copies, which I believe PUBG has (or maybe it hit that many players), publishers are gonna copy it. I mean, you aren't breaking any news here. But it's already happened, there are loads and loads of these games on PC. There are already multiple on consoles. GTA has Motor Wars or whatever. Fortnite added a PUBG knockoff mode. The Culling already existed before PUBG hit the console world. The Darwin Project was shown at E3 and looked good.
I'm pretty sure you enjoyed Uncharted 2, 3, and 4 and Last of Us even though it had MP in it. Something tells me if Sony decides to add a PUBG mode to Days Gone or if a third party publisher adds a PUBG mode to whatever your flavor of multiplatform game is, you can find a way to ignore that mode and still enjoy the game. And ignore games based on battle royale entirely. No reason to be literally depressed about it, lol.
Might as well get ready for it. The game is going to release on PS4 at some point and it's going to sell millions and millions.
