Microsoft has been pushing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds hard as their big holiday title for the Xbox One and that commitment is exemplified by Microsoft lending out Gears of War 4's developer The Coalition's expertise to the PUBG team.

As reported by Polygon, Microsoft lent out some unspecified help from the Coalition to provide aid and expertise to the port. While it is not clear exactly what help they provided, The Coalition are vanguards of tech on the Xbox One, having developed Gears of War 4 in 2016 and bringing the Xbox One X update to the game this year. As PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is one of the biggest titles of 2017 with its incredibly popularity and high sales on PC.

“PUBG is really getting the boutique, first-party, white-glove treatment from Microsoft," said Nico Bihary, Microsoft's executive producer on the game.

The Canadian developer was, until recently, known as Black Tusk Studios and had been working on a project that was intended to rival Halo within Microsoft's stable. After Microsoft bought the rights to the Gears of Wars license from Epic in 2014, Black Tusk was renamed to The Coalition and tasked with developing Gears of War 4. The Coalition refers to the Coalition of Governments, or C.O.G., within the Gears of War universe.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is scheduled for a release on Xbox One on December 12 in the Game Preview program. The game is coming out of Early Access on Steam later this month.
