After Krafton's announcement of PUBG New State and its nature of being a mobile-only title, a lot of the fanbase of the original game on PC and console felt betrayed. This is somewhat justified, as the original title on PC has been without many big updates for a while now.

However, based on a leak, they will not have to wait for too long, as New State is actually not the only tile in the work at Krafton. A separate, proper sequel to the original PUBG called 'PUBG 2' is heading to PC and consoles in 2022.

In this article, we would list out everything revealed to date about this title.

PUBG 2 Vs PUBG New State?

PUBG New State is set in 2051, 30 years after the current PUBG game, and scheduled for release sometime in 2021. The futuristic settings of the game make a lot of people think that it would be the sequel to the legendary PlayerUnknown's Battleground on PC... but apparently, it is not. PUBG 2 is going to be a console and PC exclusive experience while New State is going to be mobile-only.


This colludes with the leaks from last year showing PUBG Corps having multiple projects in the works.

PUBG 2 Leak?

Unsurprisingly, this leak also came from PlayerIGN, a famous PUBG leaker. According to him, PUBG 2 is currently in development for Consoles and PC... and similar to Fortnite, it would support cross-platform play. Recently, the developers of PUBG has held a survey amongst fan for the features that they want to be added to the game - it is very likely that some of these elements would be included into the sequel.

This is probably part of a grand plan for PUBG Corps. While the game is what brought the battle royale genre to the forefront, other games like  Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Call of Duty: Warzone have taken over in terms of popularity... and getting a sequel for PUBG out is very important for them. Along with the mobile sequel New State, the franchise could be catapulted back to glory.

It's believed the game will run on Unreal Engine 4 - this is due to an XTRM job listing asking for people with UE4 experience.

We will be reporting more about this title in the future as soon as more information is available. Check out this article for details related to PUBG New State.
