PUBG Corporation, the parent company behind the popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) available across all the major segments that is PC, Mobile & Console has just confirmed that a sequel to the existing game is currently underworked. 

A recent report by PUBG tipster who goes by the name @PlayerIGN has revealed on Twitter that a sequel dubbed as a secret project "Project XTRM" is in the making. Just like its predecessor, the newest to be released game will have a mobile and console version too and Tencent will be taking care of publishing rights. 

All the newest versions will be powered on the Unreal Engine 4 just like the current version. Also, Several Project XTRM job listings from PUBG corp are requesting prior Unreal Engine 4 experience in their resume. 

In another initial reply Tweet to the original post, PlayerIGN confirmed that the newest version will support cross-platform play. However, he made another followup tweet to rectify that it will not.

The data leaker also confirms that "PUBG2 will be made by Seoul hq and PUBGMOBILE2 by the head of PUBGLite".

Although this might be a reality that a sequel is in the making, we haven't heard from any official word from PUBG Corp themselves, so it is unlikely that we are getting a release date anytime soon.
