It’s a good time to be a PUBG fan right now. That’s because it’s Week 1 of the PUBG Global Invitational. Thirty-two teams are fighting to claim the top spot and get the largest share of the prize pool.

The question is, what happens after that? It turns out there’s a lot of things happening this year. This was revealed by Minho Yi of PUBG esports through a press conference that kicked off the PGI.S. Overall, a total of four global esports will be held in 2021.

Not One but Two

Once the winner of the PGI.S. has been named, players and fans can look forward to the PUBG Continental Series (PCS), two of them in fact. This format returns mainly because of its success last year. For PCS, it will be online regional tournaments taking place across Europe, Asia, Asia Pacific, and the Americas. The Americas consist of North America and Latin America. Each region crowns its own Grand Champion, which should be fun to watch. PCS4 is set in June while PCS5 is scheduled for September. More details about these two tournaments are to be announced at a later date.

World Championship

Of course, the year culminates with the PUBG Global Championship (PGC), which sees the best players in the world fight it out in November. For PGC, teams qualify based on the points they get through the two PCS tournaments. However, that’s not the only way teams can get points, and details will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Other Plans

PUBG also announced that when it comes to their esports scene, it’s going to focus on these three key areas:

  • Fans
    • The fan experience plays an important role. Thus, the esports scene should offer a viewing experience that’s both interactive and convenient.
  • ​Pro Players
    • This is just as important, and the focus is not only on offering larger prize pools but also larger revenue sharing.
  • ​Global Representation
    • Each tournament this year is sure to test different teams and see who is really the world’s best.
