If you’re in China and are one of the many players interested in the worldwide battle royale phenomenon Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (or PUBG for short), then you might be out of luck. Tencent, the company handling the game’s publishing in China, has officially pulled it from sale.

 Tencent had put out an alternative to PUBG called “Game of Peace”. The replacement, however, uses all of PUBG’s assets and features with minor changes and tweaks done to make the game more friendly and in tune with the regulations of the Chinese government. Apparently the approval for monetization of cosmetics in PUBG took more than an year, which made Tencent jump ship to Game of Peace. Game of Peace,apparently, had monetization approval since April.

                                                                                                                     Tencent has re-iterated that Game of Peace is a “different genre of a game” and also that all players of PUBG would retain their progress in it. Game of Peace is developed by Krafton, otherwise known as Bluehole, who developed the PC (and later console) version of the game.

Thanks, Reuters.
