Well why would you? Since the runaway success of PUBG, developer Bluehole is going to continue supporting the game for a long while yet.

In an interview with IGN, Playerunknown himself, Brendan Greene was asked if a sequel was something they would be thinking about even in the next five years.

Greene responded, saying:

“Oh no, we’re building this game as a service. 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.”

This doesn’t mean that a sequel will never happen; it just means that it’s unlikely to be on the horizon anytime soon.

In terms of the upcoming Xbox One version of PUBG, Greene said that it will be available to purchase digitally as well as physically – with Microsoft picking of publishing duties. There has yet to be a release date confirmed for the Xbox One release, although it is scheduled for this year.

In other PUBG news, the player base on PC recently exceeded 2 million users. When it does release on Xbox One it’s going to be a real boon for the console, which has been seen to be struggling with convincing exclusives.
