PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds creator Brendan Greene has hinted that developer PUBG. Corp may experiment with larger maps down the road.
Speaking during an interview with GameSpot, Greene also revealed that the 4×4 template has proven a success, and so didn't rule out the possibility of further exploring small-scale battle royale encounters. Right now PUBG on PC has two maps, Erangel and Miramar, and it's just been revealed that map selection will be added to the game in a future update.
'We want to continue to add these battlegrounds,' commented Greene. 'We now know that 4×4 works really well for a smaller battle royale–maybe we'll look in the future at doing more 4×4 maps, [while] keeping those two scales of maps and maybe even doing bigger maps. The whole idea is to experiment with the game mode and see what works well.'
Greene also revealed that PUBG Corp. is chiselling away on a new 8×8 map for this year, and there's also the Savage map currently in testing right now, which is also undergoing a bit of a makeover with the inclusion of a new cave network.
It's worth remembering that Xbox One owners will be able to take PUBG for a free spin weekend, so give it a go if you want to see why the game is one of the biggest time sinks on the planet right now.
