A tipster says that PUBG Mobile 2 may be released soon next week. PUBG Mobile was banned by the Indian government in September 2020 citing security concerns due to the Chinese-developer origins of the game. PUBG Mobile 2 was developed by South Korean company Krafton to obtain game launch characters in India from Chinese company Tencent. For now, there is no official word from the developers, so this information should take a pinch of salt.
Tipster, the nicknamed player (not affiliated with IGN), tweeted that PUBG Mobile 2 could be released next week. Citing the removed Weibo post, Tipster said the game is scheduled for 2051 and will bring weapons, gadgets and a new map of the future. It is available on Android and iOS. Krafton, who is said to be promoting the game, is expected to make an announcement in coming week at the PUBG Global Invitational.S 2021 competition.
The same Tipster shared a report released in Korea in January, stating that the development of PUBG 2 (PC and console) and PUBG Mobile 2 has been confirmed. The mobile game, called Project XDRM, is the sequel to PUBG Mobile claimed by Tipster.
PUBG Mobile was banned by the Indian government in September 2020 with 117 applications and was subsequently removed from Google Play and the App Store. Due to the involvement of Chinese company Tencent, games and other applications were banned in India due to privacy and security concerns.
Since then, Krafton, a subsidiary of PUBG Corporation, has sought to bring the game back to India. In November last year, the company announced PUBG Mobile India as “overall soon”, but has not yet been released.
While the fate of the rumored PUBG Mobile 2 in India is uncertain, the news of its release may give some hope to the game lovers in the country.
