Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, PUBG Mobile has decided to merge the World League and the World Championship into a sizeable global event called the PUBG Mobile Global Championship.

Yang added:

"Originally, we envisioned a large on-site audience to attend this event, due to COVID-19, we might not be able to implement such an approach though. Considering the circumstance, we will call this event again Season Zero."
"The season zero of the global championship will begin in late November in multiple studios depending upon the health situation."
