The Chinese corporation Tencent, the publisher of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in the Celestial Empire, together with PUBG Corporation, a division of Bluehole Studio, set about creating a mobile version of the most popular game of 2017. The upcoming project is aimed primarily at the Chinese market, however, it is quite possible that eventually it will reach the western consumer. Presumably, the main “Royal battle” of the industry will be released on iOS and Android.
The basic concept and key elements of the PC-version, according to preliminary data, will not change. On what compromises (except, of course, a simplified visual component), developers will go to transfer the game to mobile platforms – not yet reported. The exact date of the release of the new version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is unknown. If you believe the statements of the creators, work on it has been for some time.
The shooter for the survival of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, we recall, became the main game phenomenon of 2017. In just a few months of existence (and even before the official release), the “Royal Battle” from Brandon Green and the Korean company Bluehole became the most popular PC game of our time, setting an absolute record for simultaneous online and bypassing such “titans” as Dota 2 and Counter- Strike: Global Offensive. In early November, Tencent Corporation acquired exclusive rights to publish the game in China. Since then, Celestial has provided PUBG about 40% of the audience.
