PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds has been a phenomenal hit on PC and will soon be hitting Xbox One too, but it looks like a whole new category of players could access the game in the future. Publisher Tencent, which recently announced it's bringing a localized PC version of PUBG to China, has said it's developing a mobile version of the game, reports Engadget.
Tencent dropped the news in a press release and said an authentic mobile port of the PUBG is in the works. It also said China would be the first to get the port, but offered no extra details on when it would come out in that country or other markets around the world. It's worth noting there are already many smaller Chinese clones of the game on mobile devices.
PUBG is still in Early Access and is due to officially launch on PC in late December. Meanwhile, the Xbox One version of the game has an Early Access release date of December 12. We've learned about some of the updates coming in the 1.0 launch, including vaulting, climbing, and new vehicles.
A much-anticipated new map is coming to PUBG too. There's still no release date for it, but we have been getting some advance looks at its desert locale. You can get a look at the new map in the video above, and head over to GameSpot's full coverage of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for the latest updates on a future mobile version.
