PUBG will be closing on lower-end devices on April 2021
The free version of the famous battle royale game for low-end computers, PUBG Lite, is retired. If you’ve been following Lite closely, you’ll be aware of the update. However, it will undoubtedly affect a large number of gamers. Those who want to keep playing PUBG in the future have a few choices. The game’s creator recently told players that they have decided to shut down the game “after much deliberation.”
The following is the timetable for termination:
- New downloads will be unavailable after March 30, 2021, and the PUBG Lite website will be shut down.
- Service ends on April 29, 2021.
- Player support for Lite will be discontinued on May 29, 2021.
Gamers will be able to play Lite and spend their in-game credits as usual until the end of the month. The shutdown was not given a reason. PUBG Lite made its debut in Thailand in early 2019 before spreading to other countries later that year. In late 2020, the game switched to a free-to-play format.
Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene created the base game, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. In the early 2010s, he began tinkering with the concept of a battle royale game, first adding the feature through mods for other games.
Developer Bluehole eventually reached out to Greene about the possibility of making a battle royale game. Greene joined the Bluehole team as creative director shortly after and began work on what would become PUBG. The base game and a mobile version named PUBG Mobile Lite are still available for some platforms, including PC.
