South Korean game developer Krafton on Thursday announced that PUBG: New State has officially secured more than 40 million pre-registrations on Google Play and App Store following its second Alpha Test in 28 countries last month.
Krafton recently opened pre-orders in India, which contributed to the surge in pre-registrations, the company said in a statement.
“We have been able to achieve this level of success because of fan enthusiasm globally and their belief in PUBG Studios’ work,” said Minkyu Park, Executive Producer of PUBG: New State.
“We are now focused on taking the valuable feedback we received during PUBG: New State’s second Alpha Test and polishing the game before its official launch later this year,” Park added.
The company also announced that it will formally reveal PUBG: New State’s official launch date in October.
“We are devoting all our resources to ensuring PUBG: New State meets the expectations of our fans, both in terms of entertainment and stability,” Park said.
Developed by PUBG Studios, PUBG: New State will launch as a free-to-play experience on Android and iOS in 2021.
The company said that PUBG: New State recreates PUBG: Battleground’s original battle royale experience, making it the most realistic battle royale game on mobile.
