Some good news for all PUBG Mobile and PUBG players around the world. According to a report by the Korean publication MTN, a sequel to the highly popular Battle Royal game is currently being developed. However, as of now, there are no announcements made for the launch date of PUBG Mobile 2.0, or any real details for that matter, but it is most definitely under development at the South Korean studio Kraften that produced the first version.
The game is being developed under Project XTRM and has been in development since the first half of last year. PUBG has seen much success since its launch and has engulfed the war world by storm.
PUBG Mobile 2.0 in development
MTN, Korean news media site, releases the reports about the news. The website claimed that PUBG 2.0 and PUBG Mobile 2.0 were under development, with the mobile version called Project XTRM. It is further stated that a team at Crafton working on PUBG’s cross-platform sequel was transferred to the main PUBG team. The game is still in development, and only upon successful completion, will it be called PUBG 2.0. If released, PUBG Mobile 2.0 will be more popular than the first title, especially when it includes new maps and many improvements. We will have to wait to learn more about this game, as the report does not contain any details.
PUBG 2.0 launch
It is not known when the IPO may take place, but a strong, positive response to the PUBG 2.0 launch prior to the IPO would bode well for the company. According to this, we can speculate about the game at the end of this year or early next year to see where it is in the development cycle.
The post-2022 time period for the IPO is mentioned in the MTN report. However, it should be noted that Crafton, looking at the possibility of an IPO, does not mean that it will certainly go public. Companies like Uber have searched for IPOs for years before the stock market plunged.
Since the banning of PUBG mobiles in India, fans in India will be left for all the fun. Crafton has broken ties with Chinese giant Tencent – which has published the game in India – and has partnered with Microsoft to store data from Indian gamers locally. The company has already started taking interest in the sport in India.
