PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds players wondering which is the most popular map in PUBG might finally have their answer.

The official PUBG Twitter are running a poll to determine which map should be the featured map for July, when the next update for console is released. While this isn’t directly asking which the best map is, it certainly suggests as much.

Erangel remains on top

The overwhelming answer to the question is Erangel – PUBG’s first map. Of course, the other options include Miramar, Sanhok and Vikendi. Erangel is currently serving as June’s featured map following some much anticipated loot balance changes and by the looks of it, it will continue for a second straight month.

As of the time of writing, Erangel is in the lead with 50% of the vote followed by the smaller Sanhok with 22%. PUBG’s biggest map Miramar, at least in terms of land mass, and its newest, Vikendi, both have 14% each.

Considering there are four options to choose from, winning 50% of the vote is a feather in the cap of Erangel, which is testament to its longevity and simplistic design. Years after the game’s initial release and three maps later, Erangel has remained the fan favorite map.

Will console get Erangel remastered?

The PC version of the title, which runs far better than its Xbox and PS4 counterparts, has recently introduced a remastered version of Erangel which may have spiked interest in the iconic map once again. Currently there is no word when, or if at all, the remastered version will come to console.

PUBG leading the way in terms of maps

This isn’t to say the other maps are unpopular. In fact the general sentiment is that all maps have been positively received – an element PUBG is currently unrivalled on in the battle royale scene. 

No other battle royale game has introduced more maps, especially for zero cost, with other games such as Fortnite and Apex Legends opting to make alterations to their core map.

Elsewhere, Call of Duty’s Blackout has added a new map but in comparison to the original, Alcatraz is a fraction of the size.

It will be interesting to see if Erangel’s popularity continues into the following months, but as of now PUBG players don’t seem to be getting bored of it anytime soon.
