Tencent and Bluehole have joined hands to bring PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to mobile devices for the Mainland China market. The release window is not yet known, but the confirmation about the PUBG coming to the mobile devices was confirmed by both the firm via a joint press release. We haven’t received a press-release from Bluehole yet, but some media outlets in China have already reported it – so whatever information I have gathered here is the help Google Translate. According to the details by numerous media outlets, Tencent aims is to get almost all features from the PC version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to the mobile and offer that same PC experience to the mobile users.
The press-release (posted below, obviously via Google Translate) had a word from Kim Changhan – CEO of PUBG and Ma Xiaoyi – Senior Vice President of Tencent Group – both this gentleman stated: “Thanks to the excellent accumulation of” PUBG “on the PC terminal and the teamwork between the two teams, the progress of the mobile game preparation is very smooth and in the near future, Chinese players can enjoy the genuine game anytime, anywhere on the mobile phone.”
What does this mean? Your guess is as good as mine – Tencent plans to offer a such an experience where players jumping to the mobile version will be able to take advantage of their play on PC. It is still not clear how Bluehole and Tencent will achieve this.
All eyes are now on Tencent – I pray that they succeed in bringing a smooth and amazing PUBG experience on mobile, why? Well – then we might see Nintendo approaching Bluehole for a Nintendo Switch version of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
