Besides the expected launch time, the post also hints at some of the features the new version will get. It is revealed that PUBG Mobile 2.0 will take a futuristic approach and will be set in 2051. The battle royale game is likely to include futuristic gadgets, maybe drones, deployable bunkers, and more equipment for players.
Additionally, the sequel to PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds is expected to be available for both Android and iOS users, acting as a source of joy for PUBG fans.
While PUBG Mobile 2 is slated to arrive next week, there is no word on PUBG 2. However, there are chances both the versions will arrive at the same time.
Other details remain behind the wraps. But, a previous leak suggests that version 2 of the game could include support for cross-platform capability across PCs, gaming consoles, and mobile. This means that the new version of the game might be playable in India too, where PUBG is not available to play.
Further, it could be handled by key personnel of PUBG Lite, which is a toned-down variant of the game for low-RAM phones. For those who don’t know, a PUBG 2.0 version has been in the works by Krafton since 2019, which means that it could possibly be ready by now.
