According to a recently leaked report by PlayerIGN (@PlayerIGN) on Twitter suggests that Krafton Amsterdam is hiring a technical art director and technical animator to work on a “new unannounced project”. This new project is reportedly going to be based on Epic Games Unreal Engine 5.
The game is expected to offer better graphics than its previous ones. If the reports are true, the PUBG 2 will be a separate game and not an update to the existing title.
However, It is yet to confirm the leaks and we cannot be sure if the developers are building a new game or are just going to update the engine of the existing game. Even if it updates the engine to Unreal Engine 5, players are expected to witness better graphics.
