PUBG Mobile has already made a big name for itself in the mobile gaming industry and to capitalize on this success, Krafton and PUBG Corp. were rumored to develop a new title based on PUBG Mobile and a new leak suggests that the game is almost ready and will be launched next week.
Krafton became a famous name in the gaming industry when the company merged itself with PUBG Corporation, the studio responsible for the development and publication of the famous battle-royale title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. Krafton also developed a dedicated version of PUBG Mobile for the Korean and Japanese regions and recently, some sources revealed that a new successor in the PUBG franchise was in development.
The report revealed that a cross multi-platform title for PC and console is under development alongside a mobile version of it. The games were referred to as ‘Battlegrounds 2′ and Battlegrounds Mobile 2.0’ and the story was said to be set in the future of PUBG Mobile with different elements of PUBG IP being implemented in the new game as well.
A new leak comes from PlayerIGN where they stated that PUBG Mobile 2.0 may be released next week and the official announcement will be done at the same time. This information was revealed via a tweet and is a translated version of a Weibo post.
As mentioned in the post itself, this information is just a vague possibility right now but could be a potential leak of an upcoming PUBG Mobile title. The story aligns with the fact that a new title is under development and its release was expected in 2022.
Another interesting fact is that, in one article, the Executive Producer of Krafton Inc stated that the new titles were set in “PUBG universe three centuries into the future” and the post given above says that the game is “Set in 2051”.
This new PUBG title sounds promising and could be a bigger hit than its predecessor in the global mobile game market.
