Tencent recently revealed that it reached an agreement with Bluehole to become responsible for distributing PUBG in China. Apparently, their alliance will have more good results for both companies, since they have already collaborated to take the successful Battle Royale to mobiles.
According to information from tech.qq (via Daniel Ahmad), Tencent is working with Bluehole to bring PUBG to mobile devices. It is important to note that this is a project that is designed for the Chinese market and it is unknown if they intend to distribute it anywhere else in the world.
According to internal sources at PUBG Corp, the development of this new project is going from strength to strength and it is expected to be available soon for Chinese players. In addition, like the official version of PUBG for China, this mobile title will be adapted to the national ideology.
At the moment, no source has shared more details about this project so we do not know what will be the changes that the mechanics of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds will have to run on mobile phones. That said, we’ll keep an eye on it to share all the details about this new mobile project.
We take the opportunity to talk about PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to tell you that it is nominated for the Game of the Year category at The Game Awards 2017; however, its creator does not believe that it deserves the prize. On the other hand, it was recently revealed that the Bluehole project has set 7 Guinness World Records.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is available for PC and its Xbox One version will debut on December 12th.
