In 2017, the popularity of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds exploded, which established the revival of the battle royale games, but soon some began to use the acronym for this game, PUBG, instead of the long full name.
And it seems that the developer of the game decided to just go with the players’ desire. The pcgamer site last July changed the name of the game through the digital stores from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to PUBG Battlegrounds, which means that Krafton really want to officially launch this name on their game.
The site stated that it had contacted Krafton (the new name of PUBG Corp.) to ask them about the name change, as the company confirmed that it had already made this change on purpose, and this is in line with their vision to expand the PUBG brand to include different and diverse experiences located in the game world. Therefore, all upcoming games will be called PUBG, as in PUBG: New State.
We recall that last February, PUBG New State was revealed, a new PUBG mobile game that brings us into the future with better graphics and gameplay additions.
Another game located in the PUBG world was also revealed, Callisto Protocol, a science fiction and horror game from the developer of Dead Space. And last June, we heard a rumor that the PUBG 2 project was canceled and its content will be added to the current game, due to the developers facing several development problems.
