PUBG 2 For PC/Console And Mobile To Launch Soon! Details Here

PUBG 2 is reportedly in the works if a sudden upsurge in rumors related to the development hold water. The purported PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS 2 will allegedly launch as a direct sequel to the hit PUBG battle royale game on PC and console as well as PUBG Mobile on Android and iOS platforms.

Are you ready for a PUBG sequel? We will soon find out whether changes planned for the upcoming PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS manage to retain and expand the game’s player base, which hit its peak at 3.2 million concurrent players on Steam (via Steam Charts) but has shrunken a bit since alternatives such as Apex Legends, Epic’s Fortnite, and Call of Duty: Mobile entered the battle royale gaming arena.

A full-fledged sequel with its rumored new features in development could resuscitate PUBG’s flagging fortunes in some regions.

[Rumor] PUBG 2 Reportedly in the Works for Both PC/Console and Mobile from r/gamernews

PUBG 2 PC, Console, Mobile:

Apparently, Krafton (erstwhile PUBG Corp.) started a recruitment drive to fill up staff positions at their Seoul Offices to begin work on PUBG 2 dating as far back as May 2019.

Whereas, an in-house team of developers that previously created PUBG Lite for low-end computers is tasked to handle PUBG MOBILE 2 and ensure its smooth operation on smartphones and tablets.

However, one notable presence missing in the PUBG 2 cycle is none other than the titular PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, who has openly expressed his objection to a PUBG sequel in no uncertain terms. Word is around, that Greene is yet to budge on his professed stance probably because of focusing on a new IP at the PUBG Amsterdam studio established not too long ago. Krafton-funded studio Striking Distance running under the supervision of Glen Schofield recently announced a horror game The Callisto Protocol, which is keeping the PUBG grandmaster preoccupied right now.
