PUBG Creator Says Bigger Maps May Be on the Horizon

There's plenty of room for both titles to grow and PUBG is preparing to expand its features yet again by rolling out a new map for Xbox One players.

Named, PUBG Global Invitational 2018 (or PGI 2018), this worldwide esports tournament will be held from July 25th to the 29th and will feature a prize pool of $2 million. It's listed under the name "PUBG Test Server". The first-person perspective (FPP) matches will be held on July 28 and 29.

A winning team will be crowned for each perspective mode. 20 teams of players will be allowed to compete with two being the winners.
