PUBG Is Coming to Mobile

PUBG Is Coming to Mobile

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is getting a mobile port, courtesy of publisher Tencent. Developer Bluehole is working with the company to bring the hit multiplayer PC game to smart devices in China.

According to a press release (translated via Polygon), the PUBG mobile experience promises to be similar to that of the PC version. It’s unclear how exactly Bluehole will port recreate this, as the game requires a fairly powerful machine, and has complicated keyboard controls to match.

The game will launch first in China. No news on a western release date, but given the popularity of PUBG – having sold over 20 million copies worldwide – it’s likely we’ll see it sometime in the future.

Would you give a mobile version of PUBG a shot? Or would you prefer to stick to the PC and upcoming Xbox One versions? Let us know in the comments below!

This doesn't seem smart to me but is the china market just really different or something?
Idk maybe it will appeal to the casuals/children like minecraft pocket edition did (although children prbs shouldn't be playing pubg anyway so who knows)

Holy crap that's ambitious.

Hopefully they have a great plan to do this and its not an ambitious plan that falls through in planning, like the Vita Bioshock ;'(

There's already a tonne of clones out for mobile already, this seems like a good move.

Yeah I'm currently playing a free Android game called Survivor Royale, and it's actually quite fun. I sometimes play a match or two during my lunch breaks at work, and while I'm playing I'm often amazed that I'm playing such a game on a mobile phone with a hundred other people!
So I'd definitely be interested in playing an official mobile PUBG.
