PUBG Corp. say they delayed map making for fear it would cause matchmaking problems, but, apparently, they've found a way around those issues.
If you have more than one map selected, one of them will be randomly picked at the start of every match, similar to how it now works.
The map selection option is expected to be release on the game's test server next week. We already know of at least one new map in the works, the small-scale Savage map, and if it proves popular enough, it could potentially lower the population of both Erangel and Miramar.
