Tencent announce PUBG Mobile World Championship with a record prize pool
Tencent Games officially revealed the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2021 today during the World Invitational (PMWI). It will take place from November 2021 to January 2022 and crown a world champion.
The PMGC will be the “biggest event in PUBG Mobile esports,” according to Tencent Games director of PUBG Mobile global esports James Yang, and comes with a humongous prize pool of $6 million—three times the prize money that was up for grabs during the last edition of the competition.
Just like last year, the PMGC 2021 will be split into the league and final stages. The league will take place in November and December 2021. The finals, on the other hand, will occur in January 2022. The company will reveal more information about the slots and schedule at a later date, according to Yang.
