Is Pubg available on Nintendo Switch?

Thanks for reading till the end for your answer. Unfortunately, the multiplayer game isn’t available on the Switch store. Sadly, this is the truth. Despite the world’s renowned gaming platform, the Switch has not included Pubg on its console. The reasons are still unknown. Maybe there will be some storage issue or the intense graphics as the game is primarily an FPS game. To recall, FPS means “frames per seconds”. But there’re some other FPS and multiplayer games that are having prodigious memory and storage and have UHD graphics. Honestly, in our opinion, there are some other issues that are why the gaming console isn’t inducted Pubg on its store.

However, if you want to play other multiplayer battle royals or 1v1 games, you can also play Fortnite, Pokémon Sword and Shield, and Super Mario maker 2. Furthermore, if you are willing to play a similar game as Pubg, then you can try the clone of Pubg – Knives out. Knives out is a very much similar game to Pubg with the same playing conditions.

As a reminder, almost after every month, the Tencent–Pubg developers come out with an update for the game. Hence, it’s harsh to realize the game with 500 + million daily users isn’t available on Switch.
