PUBG 2.0 could be coming this year according to the latest profile report from Bloomberg which suggests Krafton is working on multiple PUBG projects.
A few months ago Krafton announced their plans to focus on creating new games based around the PUBG franchise.
Although a short trailer for one of these games was teased at the Game Awards 2020, other titles have not yet made any kind of appearance.
Krafton has not yet revealed any details for their PUBG related PC and console game. However, it is rumored that the company is preparing to go public soon with new information.
The rumored game in question is PUBG 2.0, a new version of the popular battle royale game which started it all.
PUBG 2.0 Confirmed?
In a recent Bloomberg profile of Kim Chang-han, the executive producer of PUBG has revealed new details regarding Krafton's PUBG projects.
In the report, Chang-han states that two new PUBG projects are currently in the works.
Amongst these projects could be PUBG 2.0 as well as a PUBG Mobile 2.0, and they could both be coming at some point this year.
In the Bloomberg report, Chang-han said, "he’s determined to expand the company’s games repertoire beyond its initial success". Implying that more games are planned both now and in the future.
Furthermore, Kim Goes on to mention that he plans to "release a PUBG related PC and console game by next year". This could easily be the project that fans have been eagerly awaiting.
The success of PUBG kickstarted the Battle Royale genre. Since then, there is now a wide variety of different Battle Royale games out there, but PUBG remains a huge success.
PUBG 2.0 would likely be a new and improved variant of the popular Battle Royale title. Focusing on optimization, new gameplay mechanics, and more.
PUBG 2.0 2021 Release?
As of right now, we do not know when PUBG 2.0 will be released. However, based on information in the Bloomberg profile, we can confidently say that the game will be coming this year.
Furthermore, PUBG fans can look forward to a new survival horror game in 2022, which also centers around the PUBG universe.
The game premiered last year at The Game Awards 2020 and looks to be somewhat similar to Dead Space.
Interestingly, this isn't surprising considering Glen Schofield, the creator of Dead Space is working on it too.
Check out the announcement trailer for the game just below. We don't know how this game will share a connection to the PUBG universe, but only time will tell.
The Callisto Protocol looks to be an interesting project, one which PUBG fans might love or hate.
