Dataminers think they have uncovered evidence that a clan system is on its way to becoming PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on PC and console.

Known leaker PlayerIGN has outlined a number of secrets squelched away in PUBG's game files (thanks, The Loadout), and they have found that they have a clan system , too.

Playerings believes clans will cost 5,000 battle points – which is a pretty hefty amount, and let's be honest – and may be linked to PUBG's upcoming ranked mode, as there's reportedly a label called "no clan" for the leaderboard. They've also been unveiled that clan's names will be limited to 2-15 characters, and the shortened tag offering just 2-4 characters.

It's thought clans will only be able to host a maximum of 20 members, which may be why the dataminer so uncovered evidence of a section for potential members to submit resumes in the hope of being selected.

Do not forget, crossplay for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is now live for console players, although there's no stopping PUBG wants to receive crossplay between PC and console.
