PlayerUnknown’s Battle Grounds has announced some massive sweeping changes coming to their esports scene for the 2020 season.
PUBG made a pretty extensive post to their website this week outlining many of the changes coming with the 2020 season of PUBG Esports. Looking to expand on the success of the PUBG Global Championship, the league has announced the introduction of The PUBG Global Series.
The plan outlines three global events that will act as regional qualifiers culminating in the PUBG Global Championship 2020. All four events will be held in major cities around the world in April, July, October and November. The first event, PGS Berlin, will kick off the 2020 season and have a qualification event beginning in February for most regions.
What is unclear is exactly what is happening to the previously established leagues like the National PUBG League or the PUBG European League. The post simply says that those league will “transform” into an open qualification system which will feed the region’s teams into PGS events.
Lastly, the top 4 teams from PGC 19 will be automatically qualified for the PGS Berling event, meaning the remaining 28 slots are up for grabs.
We reached out to PUBG Esports for comment who said additional details are expected to revealed in January 2020. Keep it locked to CheckpointXP for more info about PUBG Esports.
