Krafton has officially revealed the launch date for PUBG: New state. The game succeeds the company's crown jewel, PUBG Mobile. PUBG: New State will hit Android and iOS devices on November 11, 2021 and bring forth several improvements, such as improved graphics and new gameplay mechanics.

Developer Krafton has officially announced the release date of PUBG: New State, the sequel to the massively popular PUBG Mobile. The game was announced earlier this year, and an open beta followed shortly after. PUBG New State will be downloadable on iOS and Android on November 11 in over 200 countries.

Krafton states that PUBG: New State is set in a dystopian version of the PUBG Universe in 2051. While the core mechanics are expected to remain the same, the game will add new elements such as deployable drones, customizable weapons and a player recruitment system. Some new maps will be added, along with futuristic remakes of classic PUBG maps such as Erangel.

Other PUBG: New State features include improved graphics and a robust anti-cheat system. The former could render the game inoperable on some older hardware. Whether or not Krafton will launch a lite version of the game remains to be seen. Otherwise, there's always the original PUBG Mobile to fall back on. PUBG Mobile has been plagued with cheaters since the get-go, and it'll be interesting to see if the new anti-cheat measures address that.

PUBG: New State should breathe some new life into the franchise. Krafton states that over 50 million players had pre-registered for the game when it was announced. Most of PUBG Mobile's player base will likely migrate to New State, so it's still a net positive for Krafton. Will New State be able to carry forward the original PUBG Mobile's legacy? If Krafton keeps the game topped up with content, battle passes and the likes, there's no reason it shouldn't.
