A PUBG sequel in some form is expected to be released for PC and consoles by 2022. This is a different game from PUBG: New State, a futuristic battle royale game that was released last week.
Well-known PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds dataminer PlayerIGN (no relationship with IGN or its subsidiaries) tweeted that New State isn’t the PUBG 2 of the same name that has been expected for some time. When asked if New State is the follow-up we’ve been waiting for, PlayerIGN replied, “We’re still waiting for the PUBG 2 thing (PC / console) until 2022.”
He stated that New State will remain mobile, at least for the time being, and is not expected to interact with any of the other versions of PUBG currently available. This is in line with a January report that a mobile game was due this year and another PUBG release next year. PUBG: New State was developed by PUBG Corp and published by Krafton Inc. Players are placed on a new 8 × 8 map called Troi. It takes place in the year 2051 and features futuristic vehicles, more destructible environments. According to the first press release, players can “enjoy next generation survival features that evolve the battlefields.”
This is the first step towards a broader PUBG universe that Krafton is gradually putting together. Last December it was announced that Callisto Protocol, a single-player horror game by former Dead Space developers, would take place 300 years in the future from PUBG.
New state is for phones only, the Pubg 2 thing (PC / console) is something we’re still waiting for until 2022
