As the world continues to tackle the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, PUBG Corp has laid out its plans for the esports season ahead. The popular PCS series returns later this year with two more online regional tournaments, and a global championship.
Once the PGI.S tournament comes to a conclusion on March 28, Mianho Yi, the head of PUBG Esports, says PUBG Corp will be looking ahead to PCS4 and 5, which will take place in June and September respectively. These tournaments will take place across Europe, Asia, Asia-Pacific, and the Americas, which now includes North America and LATAM, and will provide a chance for teams to fight for the glory of becoming regional champions.
During these tournaments, teams will also pick up qualifying points which count towards the 2021 PUBG Global Championship at the end of November.
While we don’t know too much about these three tournaments, we do know that PUBG Corp will really be focusing on providing more support to both the fans and the players. Earlier this year, PUBG Corp announced it would allow fans to watch PUBG esports matches within the game client and this forms a part of this process. Increased involvement with tournaments, such as the return of the popular pick’em challenge will also be returning this year.
For players, PUBG Corp says it’s committed to increasing prize pools and improving the current revenue sharing scheme, but further details have not yet been provided.
