Given the tremendous success of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, developer Bluehole is of course going to continue to support the game for a long long time. However, Playerunknown himself, Brendan Greene, said in a recent interview that a sequel to the biggest game on steam, is not coming anytime soon.
Speaking to IGN, Greene was asked about the next five years of PUBG and if there will be a sequel. Greene responded with “Oh no,” . Instead, players can expect the developer Bluehole updating and refreshing the game with patches over time instead of making PUBG 2.
“We’re building this game as a service,” Greene said. “We’ll still have the boxed copy that you buy … we still want to polish and refine. Add more maps, add more assets, and continually refine the gameplay and optimise as we go forward.”
In addition, Greene confirmed that PUBG will be available on Xbox One on a disc (in addition to digitally). Microsoft is publishing the Xbox One version of PUBG, and Greene says he’s excited to bring the game to a console like Xbox. The Xbox One version of PUBG will hopefully launch later this year, though a specific release date hasn’t been announced yet.
Keep in mind that this news isn’t to say PUBG 2 will never happen, but it’s clear that it’s not going to anytime soon. Microsoft has said something similar about a Minecraft sequel.
