PUBG leaker claims pure sequel is in the works Krafton is currently working on PUBG 2, according to well-known PUBG leaker PlayerIGN‘s latest video.
PlayerIGN claims to have insider sources who have confirmed that PUBG 2 is in the works and will be based on realism, not a futuristic take on the PUBG format. As we reported earlier in January of this year, a Bloomberg report said a new “PUBG-related” game will be out next year, so it very well could be PUBG 2 being the game in question.
PlayerIGN also reports that the dev team for the Battle Royale sequel will be the same team as PUBG, as well as some new developers recruited for their experience working on other Battle Royale titles. This approach to development aims to ensure that PUBG 2’s gunfight feels as good as the original title.
This leak also claims that PUBG 2 will be a battle royale, and that the developers aren’t trying to shake up the game mode and instead make it a “pure sequel”. This suggests it is separate from the seemingly sci-fi project that is seemingly in the works under PUBG Corp.
The video doesn’t contain any information like a release date, platform or anything, but if it’s the same project highlighted by Bloomberg earlier this year, it could arrive in 2022.
PlayerIGN has been right about PUBG leaks before – including job openings, unreleased skins and a new map – thanks to data mining and an alleged internal source. However, this most recent PUBG 2 is said to be the last from the leaker, as they have “moved further”.
The Callisto Protocol, a survival horror game set in the PUBG universe, will also be released sometime next year. If you’re a PUBG fan, 2022 could be a great year.
The Callisto Protocol marks Glen Schofield’s return to survival horror, but it’s so much more than a next-gen Dead Space.
