Tencent is Making a Mobile Version of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for China

PUBG on the go.

Following a recent deal with the PUBG Corp. that made Tencent the exclusive publisher of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China, the Chinese media company today announced that it will also be producing a mobile port for the game in China. Tencent will serve as co-developer on the mobile version alongside South Korea's Bluehole.

Tencent announced that together with PUBG Corp, the mobile version will be as authentic as possible to the PC version of the game in regards to gameplay, core elements, and as Engadget reports, "compliance with local content regulations."

That last bit presumably refers to how the Chinese version of PUBG on PC will be modified to include "Socialist core values" required of the Chinese release.

There's no release date yet for the mobile version, or even news of whether it will release outside of China. All we know is that the version is making "very good progress."

There are several Battle Royale mobile games current out in China, so it's not like this is necessarily new. However, PUBG is one of the biggest games of the year, so it's possible that PUBG mobile might make it outside of China. Though with a Xbox One version out soon, it might not be the most important PUBG release on the horizon.
