PUBG New State is positioned as a futuristic title in the popular franchise, with several features that are unique and groundbreaking at the same time. The game, which was released in November 2021, has received good response from the mobile community and has managed to accumulate impressive numbers in terms of downloads and player base.
In a recent development, the game, which was previously called PUBG: New State, has been rebranded as New State Mobile on several platforms, including the game’s official website, and is referred to by the new name on social media.
PUBG New State Renamed
Krafton’s latest mobile release, PUBG New State, now has a new identity. The same is indicated by the new logo in the latest images on the official handles. When visiting the official website, users can see the game with the new name under the “Product” category. The official description reads: “Optimized for mobile play, NEW STATE MOBILE will put the full Battle Royale experience directly into the hands of players.”

In addition, the official blog post about the New State Mobile Open Challenge uses the new name. However, no official announcement has been made about the company’s name change. But it will probably happen soon
The renaming is likely meant to communicate a bigger picture of the PUBG universe. Similarly, Krafton changed PUBG (PC) to PUBG: Battlegrounds last year. Previously, the company stated that rebranding was the first step toward realizing its vision for expanding the IP.
New State Mobile esports event
The company has also announced the first New State Mobile esports event. The event will take place in Korea and will expand to other global events in the coming days. Players will participate in the game’s new BR: Extreme Mode, introduced in the January update. Applications for the event are also open to Korean users who have managed to earn Gold Tier or above in Season 1.
