PUBG Mobile 2 will feature a brand-new map set in the future, but it is currently unknown if it will deviate much in terms of gameplay mechanics. 

Coming to Android and iOS

The upcoming game is set to be announced next week for Android and iOS. 

PUBGM2 was first dubbed Project XTRM, and PlayerIGN reported on January 6th that Krafton has indeed been working on a sequel to the massively popular PUBG Mobile. It is unknown if the upcoming game will replace its predecessor or remain a standalone game with fresh gameplay mechanics set in the future. 

PUBG Mobile 2 Release Date

The PUBG Global Invitational.S 2021 event is ongoing, and the game is expected to be announced next week. The global esports event will end on March 28th. We should receive information from Krafton over the next few weeks if the rumors are true. 

Will PUBGM2 Be Available in India? 

PUBG Mobile was banned in India because it was developed by Chinese developer Tencent and not Krafton, the Korean studio behind PUBG PC. If PUBGM2 is fully developed by Krafton, a ban may not be imposed on the upcoming title. With no official announcement yet, Indian fans will have to wait and see if the upcoming title will be available in India following the ban of PUBG Mobile last year. Krafton has reportedly been working on getting the ban on PUBG Mobile lifted, but there has been no official news regarding the title coming back to the country yet.
