Vivid questions from all the gamers in India right now:

PlayerUnogn’s Battleground or PUBG was developed by a man named Brendan Green, who was a resident of Ireland. Green produced a desktop version of PUBG that was developed by a South Korean gaming company named Bluehole.

In 2017, China was reportedly on the verge of banning the game, claiming that it was too violent and bloody and went against the country’s cultural values. In fact, the government offered PUBG lovers a state-approved alternative to the game, Force for Peace.
Tencent Games, which was part of the Chinese conglomerate Tencent Holdings, offered to develop a mobile version of the game PUBG Mobile, after changing the format slightly. Soon after India-China were face to face, Indians also pleaded to see how much PUBG Tencent really owns, trying to understand how the Chinese game is. For those wondering, Tencent has a 10% stake in Bluehole.
The answer is both yes and no. While it was initially developed by a South Korean company, Chinese firm Tencent Games developed a mobile version of the game. Both Bluehole and Tencent share profits from the sale of the game according to prior license agreements.
