Unfortunately this means there is no more Murderland or Kill Box, but instead Santa Domingo, El Pozo and other poorly-translated spanish names.

A PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds spokesperson did confirm to MCV's sister site Esports Pro, however, that Tencent does not now own a stake in either Bluehole or the more recently formed PUBG Corp.
