Unexpectedly, PUBG changes its name

PUBG It will no longer just be a battle royale. Krafton, the company responsible for this series, is doing everything possible to expand this universe. From sequels, to spin-offs that take place in completely different genres. Thus, the name of the game that started it all has changed to reflect the future of the property.

Unexpectedly, it has been revealed that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will now be known as PUBG Battleground, A name that sounds somewhat redundant, but, as a company representative points out, it makes sense. This is what was commented in an interview with PC Gamer:

Krafton seeks to actively expand the PUBG brand through a variety of new experiences set in its universe. Rebranding PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds as PUBG Battleground is just the first step in realizing this vision. The next titles in the franchise will carry the PUBG name, as seen in PUBG: New State. “

Next to PUBG Battlegrounds already PUBG: New State, is also in development The Callisto Protocol, a survival-horror that takes place in the distant future of this universe. Similarly, Project cowboys Y Project Titan They are in production, although there is not much information on these games at the moment.

Without a doubt, the name change is something weird, but It is understandable considering the plans that Krafton has for the future of the series. On related issues, this company is already on the stock market.
