PUBG, the biggest production of the Battle Royale genre, will be reborn with the sequel.
While PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds ( PUBG ) was once the most popular game , it still has an active player base today. Rumors about the development of the second game, which has an important share in the development of the Battle Royale genre, started to make a sound in the game world.
According to a recent report from the Korean media outlet MTN , efforts have been made for an “authentic sequel” of PUBG for a long time. Apparently, Krafton (the new name of the developer company) started setting up main offices in Seoul for PUBG 2 as early as May 2019. Meanwhile, the claim that PUBG Mobile 2 is also being developed within the company that developed PUBG LITE for low computers has also been made. Actually, the way these events work very differently.
PUBG Mobile 2 has been launched as a different game hidden under the name ProjectXTRM until now . According to the report published by MTN, ProjectXTRM was PUBG Mobile 2 and it was being worked on by the company that developed PUBG LITE. This proves why PUBG LITE has not been updated for a long time. In the rest of the report, it was stated that the PC version of the game was developed in Seoul.
However, there is dynamism on the console side of the game. Since Krafton aims to offer PUBG 2 cross-platform, it must be considering releasing PC, mobile and console games at the same time. Cross platform means that the PC gamer encounters the mobile player. It cannot be thought that this will affect the gameplay situation positively, but it is necessary to provide an equality between platforms for players.
The famous game editor PlayerIGN also tried to present to his followers what he understood with Google Translate from the fact that the report shared on MTN was in Korean in his tweets.
#PUBG just confirmed that they're working on PUBG 2.0 and PUBG Mobile 2.0
Global announcement soon?
The secret #ProjectXTRM thing from last yr was a PUBGM2 all along. I knew XTRM was a mobile game.
So I didn't make a update video on it. Got so tilted when I learned about it. pic.twitter.com/50hnX60epv

Since there is only so much information on the subject, nobody has any idea about the details yet. It is unclear whether the announcement will be made globally or the details will be shared in the following days, but we will continue to share as we develop.
