PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, arguably the most popular game released in 2017, recently left Steam Early Access on PC when using the developers installing the roadmap for future development. Somewhat recently the Battle Royale game had launched within the Xbox One Game Preview program, where game reached over one million players within the first 48 hours despite attracting criticism due to its currently poor performance. At the same time, Microsoft announced not wearing running shoes would bundle PUBG alongside the new Xbox One X console for your very limited time.
As you will notice below, the official Xbox Twitter account debuted a brand new image ad yesterday to celebrate this deal.

Unfortunately, it appears as if Microsoft’s advertising agency could have stolen the ad concept from Redditor Macsterr, who posted this particular image a couple of month ago.
When a fellow Redditor suggested that they might well have simply had exactly the same idea a great ad concept, Macsterr replied that the was impossible as his original post had registered over 63K views, hinting that there would be a strong chance someone for the advertising agency utilised by Microsoft might have seen it.
Admittedly the photos look much the same, apart from swapping the original Xbox One S console with all the Xbox One X as befitting the brand new deal. The clouds in private, along with the particular collection of grass, all manage to provides it away. Tell us that which you line of this puzzling situation below. We’ll keep you posted let’s say Microsoft clears that.
As a stern reminder, Bluehole revealed yesterday that over $ 30 million players are actually playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds across both platforms. While using PC version estimated to have around 26 million players, this will are convinced that we already have roughly four million players playing PUBG about the Xbox One.
