PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Coming to Mobile phones in China: Tencent
 
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) will be coming to mobile phones. Tencent — PUBG’s China publisher will be working with the game’s developer Bluehole to bring PUBG to mobile phones for the Mainland China market.


According to a post by Tencent, development on the mobile version of PUBG is “ongoing smoothly”. What this means is, you can expect PUBG on Android and iOS devices quickly enough.


There’s no reference to a PUBG mobile game release beyond China just yet. No real surprise considering 40 % of the PC version's player base lives in China. The Xbox One will get PUBG globally too on December 12.


Given that Tencent’s competitor  Pubg items  NetEase has video games akin to PUBG for example Terminator 2 and Wilderness as the first and third most downloaded mobile video games in China at the moment, it’s only natural that the company is actually looking to compete in whichever way possible.


Previously in the year, Tencent was bashed by China’s media for getting children hooked on physical violence after the fantasy role-playing game Honour associated with Kings boomed in popularity, forcing this to introduce a curfew for underage players.


The company stated it would highlight the actual spirit of team-work and fair competition from PUBG and be sure it delivers "healthy, positive cultural and value guidance, specifically for underage users".
