For some reason, PUBG has been renamed PUBG: Battlegrounds

 Krafton, the publisher of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, has decided that the game needs to stand out from the rest of the series. Krafton chose PUBG: Battlegrounds from a nearly limitless list of rebranding options. We should apparently overlook the redundancy in this case.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, or PUBG for short, is receiving a new moniker. Last month, the game's publisher, Krafton, decided to modify the game's Steam name to PUBG: Battlegrounds. As a result, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds: Battlegrounds will now fall under a category of language redundancies called RAS syndrome, which includes tautologies like ATM machines, PIN numbers, and LCD display. syndrome of redundant acronyms syndrome.

Krafton felt a name change was important as it starts making other PUBG marked titles. 

"Krafton is effectively growing the PUBG brand through an assortment of new encounters set in its universe," a representative disclosed to PC Gamer. "Rebranding PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds to PUBG: Battlegrounds is the initial phase in us understanding this vision. Extra titles in the establishment will convey the PUBG name, as you see with our impending game, PUBG: New State." 

The thinking does bode well, however why PUBG: Battlegrounds? What's up with PUBG: Battle Royale or PUBG: Drop Zone? PC Gamer asked Krafton for what good reason "Milestones" and not something different, but rather the representative would not intricate. 

Concerning the eventual fate of the PUBG brand, there is as of now PUBG Mobile 1.5: Ignition, all the more essentially known as PUBG Mobile for iOS and Android. Krafton likewise has another versatile game in progress called PUBG: New State, which is only business as usual PUBG activity in a somewhat advanced setting. 

Krafton likewise has an endurance frightfulness game coming one year from now called The Callisto Protocol (trailer above). It is set on one of the moons of Jupiter, yet is inside the PUBG universe and legend. Glen Schofield, the maker of Dead Space, is going up the undertaking under his new improvement house Striking Distance Studios. It is indistinct if Krafton plans to change the name to PUBG: The Callisto Protocol. Maybe it will call it PUBG: The TCP Protocol. 

Obviously, players will likely still call PUBG: Battlegrounds, "PUBG," while alluding to more up-to-date games by their post-colon title (New State). So the name change isn't probably going to have that much effect among fans.
