*PUBG Mobile 2 launch could happen as early as next week for Android and iOS users
*The game will be set in the PUBG universe in the year 2051 and feature a ‘futuristic’ aesthetic
*It will also come with a new map and new gameplay elements such as deployable bunkers and drones
Reports of Krafton working on a PUBG Mobile sequel and other titles set in the PUBG Universe have been around for quite some time now. One of them speculated that PUBG Mobile 2 would be released by June 2020. A (now deleted) Weibo post, via PlayerIGN on Twitter, suggests that PUBG Mobile 2 launch could be as early as next week. As mentioned earlier, PUBG Mobile 2 will be set in a future iteration of the PUBG universe (the year 2051, specifically). Among other things, it will get a new map, a ‘futuristic style’ and more. PUBG Mobile 2 will be available on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store
PUBG Mobile 2 features
Some other rumoured PUBG Mobile 2 improvements include drones and deployable bunkers, which should add a whole new dimension to the somewhat ageing mechanics of Battle Royale games. It is possible that PUBG Mobile 2 will not be available globally at launch. Its developer, Krafton, will very likely announce it next week, solicit players for a beta test and then launch a full version several weeks or even months after the initial reveal.
Although PlayerIGN has been fairly accurate with his PUBG-centric leaks in the past, it’s best if we treat this information with a healthy dose of scepticism. It seems a tad too early for Krafton to be launching such a massive title, especially when its predecessor is doing just fine. PUBG Mobile 2 also runs the risk of cannibalising the original PUBG Mobile. However, this is good news for Indians as they will be able to start playing PUBG Mobile 2 the moment it hits Indian shores.
PUBG Mobile was banned in India back in September last year alongside hundreds of other Chinese applications such as TikTok, Camscanner, among others under Section 69A of the Information Technology (IT) Act. A few months later, in November PUBG Corporation announced to bring back the game but in a new version called the PUBG Mobile India. Back then, the company teased that the new Indian version of the game will release soon and be aimed at offering security and privacy to users.
What’s happening between PUBG Mobile and the government
Last month, PUBG Mobile reportedly requested the Indian government to hold a meeting to discuss the re-launch of PUBG Mobile in India but the company didn’t get any good response. So, we suggest you wait for the company and the government to release official details about the launch of the game before trusting rumours circulating the web. Be assured, for now, there are no official words from the government or PUBG Corporation on the relaunch of the game in India.
Recently, the government of India reportedly put a permanent ban on a few of the Chinese apps, which means they will never return to India. This list doesn’t include PUBG Mobile, which is still good news for the company.
How easy is it to re-launch banned PUBG Mobile in India
Well, it’s not as easy as it sounds to be. Re-launching a banned app in India is a big task. To bring back the game in India, PUBG Corporation will need to first meet all the requirements or concerns raised by the Indian government. One of the key reasons that the app was banned in India was user security and privacy at risk.
At the time of announcing the PUBG Mobile India, the company said that the new avatar’s top-most priority is: security of users. The company also said that PUBG Mobile India will be an optimised version of the main game and meet all concerns raised by the government of India. So, to bring the game back in the country, PUBG Corporation will first need to prove that the platform is safe for Indian players and data is being hosted in the country and not China.
