Future Scope for PUBG
Things are starting to look up for esports in India. In recent years as 4G flourished, and lower-end phones became more powerful, the entry point to gaming in India has lowered considerably. The popularity of game like PUBG Mobile, and the media surrounding it, has driven the way for more games and content creators to push gaming content for India.
Qualcomm has not said anything about the level of difficulty that these players will have to face. The chipmaker is not revealing the tournament dates, but that should happen soon. Moreover, Qualcomm’s entry into India’s esports sector brings more opportunities for the gamers of India. The first tournament is in partnership with Garena Free Fire but Qualcomm is likely to bring more titles to its esports tournament in the future. These could include the upcoming PUBG Mobile India that PUBG Corporation is launching in India with a series of censored elements, such as fully-clothed avatars.
