  • Tencent will distribute PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China

The Chinese media giant Tencent is partnering up with the PUBG Corporation to publish PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds in China, the two companies recently announced.

Talk of Tencent acquiring PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole has been doing the rounds for quite some time, with claims that Bluehole previously rejected an acquisition offer prior to the PUBG explosion. PUBG Corp and Tencent would be kind of foolish to ignore the Chinese gaming market given that it's the largest in the world, and, well, profits are more important to expansion than anything else for a growing company. While the game remains popular among Chinese players, the shooter suddenly faced the prospect of a government ban for not lining up with Chinese social values.

Banning the game in China, though, would be a big blow. For example, they had to change the color of blood from red to black.

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.
