Recently, Xbox Spain hosted a presentation about PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) in which the team revealed that a new map and retailing packaging was coming in April 2018. Unfortunately, this doesn't appear to be the case because Xbox's Aaron Greenberg stated that the new "Miramar" desert map was coming to Xbox One in May instead.
Updated April 7, 2018: Xbox Spain said that a new map was coming to PUBG on Xbox One in April 2018, but recently Xbox's Aaron Greenberg and Nico Bihary refuted that claim. We've updated this article to reflect this change. It's understandable that release windows shift on a week-to-week basis because PUBG is in early access on the platform.
Nico Bihary, Microsoft's Executive Producer for PUBG, confirmed the May map release window but also teased "exciting news" for April. It's unclear what this could be but we'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Hopefully it's not the new retail packaging Xbox Spain announced during its event and is a major update.
PUBG is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with the help of community feedback. Starting with absolutely nothing, players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a battle to be the only one alive. PUBG is a surprisingly realistic and high-tension title set on a massive island. Be sure to check out the game if you like competitive multiplayer experiences.
