This follows news that the company wanted to acquire the game's developer, Bluehole.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is on Steam Early Access now with a full release scheduled for later this year, and will be available on Xbox One's Game Preview program on December 12.
Bluehole Studio plans to release its record-breaking mega-hit shooting game "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" in China, in partnership with internet and game giant Tecent Holdings, the two companies said on November 22. Alterations will be carried out by Tencent, the game's publisher in the country, to align with "socialist core values", reportsSina Tech. Because of that, Tencent said it will work closely with PUBG Corporation and the Chinese authorities to change the game in necessary ways to keep it legal in the country. "Tencent will localize and operate the game by catering to the preferences of Chinese gamers".
The move comes after China's content regulator slammed the South Korean-made game, PUBG for short, last month for being too violent and said it would likely be blocked because it "severely deviates from socialist core values".
