Tencent to act as exclusive Chinese publisher for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Tencent (OTCPK:TCEHY, OTCPK:TCTZF) will bring its Playerunknown's Battleground (PUBG) video game to China but with edits to satisfy the local government, according to Reuters. The partnership was announced earlier today. If PUBG was to go down this route, we believe that it would be harder for them to get approval without making changes to the game as per SAPPRFT content regulations.

Those changes might include toning down some of the game's more violent elements. The title will now be the product of a collaboration between PlayerUnknown, BlueHole, and Tencent in China. A significant number of PUBG's most prolific cheaters are reported to have originated from China, and a lack of servers in the country means Chinese players can be found across the world. With Tencent behind the project, it's now unlikely such a ban will be put in place. Tencent now own a 5% share in the Korean studio, and the possibility of increasing that share has been discussed.
