PUBG 2 PC, PS5, Xbox Sequence X Launch Date Slated for 2022: Report


It seems that PUBG 2 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Sequence X|S can be totally different from PUBG: New State that’s been introduced for Android and iOS. In response to well-known dataminer PlayerIGN (no relation to IGN or IGN India), PUBG: New State is for cellular solely. Any information or data concerning PUBG 2 PC and console is one thing “we’re nonetheless ready for by 2022”.

Earlier this week, Krafton revealed PUBG: New State for Android and iOS. This got here after weeks of hypothesis surrounding the opportunity of a brand new PUBG recreation. In truth, PlayerIGN had advised that we might see a PUBG Cellular successor introduced through the ongoing PUBG Invitational.S for PC.

PUBG 2 and PUBG: New State Cross-Play and Cross-Development

Apparently, Krafton hasn’t said that PUBG: New State would work together with the PC and console variations of PUBG in any approach. The shortage of any concrete cross-play or cross-platform announcement means that the developer continues to be figuring out particulars. It’s attainable although, {that a} PUBG sequel for PC, PS5, and Xbox Sequence X|S would join with PUBG: New State in some significant approach.

That mentioned, whereas the tech exists to make sure some type of cross-play and development, we received’t be stunned if the industrial facet of recreation growth has held it again. Previously, builders have alluded that the income cut up concerning micro-transactions and which platforms they’re attributed to have been a serious concern significantly with the likes of Sony and Microsoft concerned.

“I can solely think about the complexities of these conversations between the 2 [Sony and Microsoft] and a few of these of complexities come within the areas of stuff like purchasable content material and if ‘we permit cross-platform play, what does it imply to buy on one platform and play it on the opposite.’ So there’s lots of actually difficult points. It is not our drawback. It is on the first-party aspect. There’s lots of attention-grabbing issues they want to determine as first-parties that has nothing to do with us. As soon as they determine it out we’ll work out what our plan is,” mentioned long-time WWE 2K collection producer Mark Little in an interview concerning the WWE’s points with bringing cross-platform and cross-play to that franchise.

Whereas PUBG cross-play exists between PC and console variations, PUBG Cellular was its personal beast. There are a number of hurdles. For starters, the value distinction for in-app purchases between platforms tends to huge. Cellular avid gamers in markets like India pay much less for in-app purchases like battle passes which are typically extra well-liked right here than every other micro-transaction because of the worth supplied.

Throw in appreciable subsidies from Krafton and Google and there’s on the very least, a Rs. 200 distinction versus buying the unique PUBG battle go (or royale go because it’s identified) on Android versus PC — roughly Rs. 440 versus Rs. 649. The distinction is much more if you take PS4 and Xbox One pricing at Rs. 1,248 and Rs. 824 respectively.

Maybe Krafton would have the ability to iron out the main points quickly sufficient in addition to guarantee some type of content material parity what with an upcoming IPO that’s largely depending on the sustained and ongoing success of PUBG.

That mentioned, PUBG 2 is not the one new recreation to stay up for within the PUBG franchise; Useless Area creator Glen Schofield introduced that his studio, Putting Distance, is engaged on a recreation dubbed The Callisto Protocol, which can be set within the PUBG universe.
