Every year brings its load of new opportunities, and 2022 is shaping to be an excellent year for PUBG esports. PUBG Corporation has revealed its roadmap for another full year of competitive play.
This year, PUBG builds on past successes and innovates differently. For example, this way of thinking translates perfectly into many new and returning event formats. At the top, the Nation Cup allows esports players to compete for their country.
Although fans are still waiting on more precise details, the entire 2022 schedule is already available. The PUBG National Cups also make their great return, replacing the former global invitation format. These events allowed players to show off their skill on a local level, away from the pressure of the Continental Series.
The 2021 season of PUBG Esports featured both season 4 and season 5 of the Continental Series. They saw each region battle it out for a share of $250 thousand. Furthermore, the Global Invitational and Championship took place this year, featuring the best teams across the globe. Fans have witnessed world-class showdowns in the quest for over $12 million.
The year finished on December 19th with the PUBG Global Championship. We saw the top 32 qualifying teams fight for the world title. Once all the dust settled, we saw China’s own New Happy become victorious. This roster has initially been an underdog heading into the finals since they finished 8th in Asia heading into the championship event.
