Developer PUBG Corp. has revealed that it will be getting rid of the map select feature in a future update for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
It might sound like an odd thing to propose. Especially given that PUBG Corps. only added the option recently.
The game only has two maps right now: Erangel and Miramar. Miramar hasn’t been a smash hit with a lot of players, and this meant that Erangel was chosen far more.
On June 22nd, the PC version of PUBG will have map selection removed from the game.
With the arrival of the game’s third map, Sanhok, you will have the choice of playing only in the new map. You can also opt to for a random selection between all three maps.
The following is from a developer letter about the new Sanhok map:
“We’ve decided that we can’t support individual map selection for more than two maps. This is because map selection creates an essentially exponential increase in the number of total separate queues when combined with other queue options like party size and perspective. That means the matchmaking pool gets split into many small sections, making it nearly impossible to put together a match in at least some of those queues.”
