PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) is an event that fans around the world wait for every year as they get to see the best teams compete for a gigantic prize pool.
Tencent and Krafton host the prestigious event at the end of every year since 2020. Both the previous editions saw the dominance of Chinese teams, which is considered to be the best PUBG Mobile region.
Today, during the 2022 Esports Annual Submit, co-hosted by Tencent and Asian Electronic Sports Federation, it was revealed that four teams from China would participate in the PMGC 2022, a $4 million event.
