PUBG Mobile 2 may release as soon as next week, according to a tipster. To recall, PUBG Mobile banned in India in September 2020 by the Indian government. It is citing security concerns due to the game’s Chinese-developer origin. The new update is developing under South Korean company Krafton. It took over publishing duties for the game in India from Chinese company Tencent.

However, as of now, there is no official word from the developers. A tipster PlayerIGN (not affiliated to IGN) tweeted that PUBG Mobile 2 may release next week. He also cites a deleted Weibo post, which also shares that the game is in 2051. In addition, it will bring futuristic weapons, gadgets, and a new map. Moreover, it will be available on both Android and iOS. We can expect an announcement at PUBG Global Invitational.S 2021 tournament next week by the company.

The same tipster had shared a report from a Korean publication back in January. It claimed that the development of PUBG 2 (PC and consoles) and PUBG Mobile 2 is confirmed. The mobile game, dubbed Project XTRM, was a sequel to PUBG Mobile, the tipster claimed.

Other details remain behind the wraps. However, a previous leak suggests that PUBG Mobile 2 could include support for cross-platform capability across PCs, gaming consoles, and mobile. This means that the new version of the game might be playable in India too. However, PUBG is not available to play in India.
For now, it is not clear if PUBG Mobile 2 will come to India. The arrival of this upcoming game in India will rely on whether the game has any Chinese connections. In November last year, the company announced PUBG Mobile India that was touted to be “coming soon” but has not released yet. We should keep our hopes up and wait for some solid information on the game.
