Update: It turns out that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will run at 30 FPS on all Xbox One devices, according to Brendan Greene. In an update on Twitter, he said that the game will not run at 60 FPS on Xbox One X when it hits Xbox Game Preview later this month.
While I previously stated PUBG would run at higher FPS at XGP launch on 12/12, I want to clarify that PUBG will run at 30 FPS across all @Xbox One devices. We’re constantly refining the game & exploring options to increase FPS, but this early in dev, we’re unable to confirm more.

Original Story: PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds creator Brendan Greene revealed during a recent interview that the game will hit 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
Speaking to Games TM magazine (via WCCFTech), Greene confirmed that the game will “definitely” hit the 60 FPS mark on the X, but may be limited to 30 FPS on the base Xbox One, as the game is only running at 30-40 FPS, currently.
“Definitely on Xbox One X, 60 FPS,” Greene said. “On Xbox One, we’re not sure. We may have to limit it at 30 FPS, maybe, but the last time I saw it, it was running at about 30 to 40.”
Greene added that the team is aiming to hit 60 FPS on Xbox One, but noted that “frame rate isn’t that important” for a slower shooter like PUBG.
“I have great faith that we’ll get there. The great thing about Battlegrounds is that it’s not…unlike the more high paced shooters, frame rate isn’t that important,” he explained. “Yes, it is important, but it’s not as important for us as it is in a twitch shooter. So we’re aiming for 60; not sure if we’ll get there, but that is our aim.”
In other news, the first gameplay footage of PUBG‘s new desert map will be shown during The Game Awards on December 7th.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now on PC and will be coming to Xbox One on December 12th.
