"The success of PUBG Mobile proves both development prowess and publishing capabilities," said Tencent Global Publishing Center general manager Vincent Wang, in a statement. "And these attributes have allowed us to thrive in the ultra-competitive mobile games market.”

“PUBG Mobile has become an award-winning game that's experienced rapid growth to reach more than 30 million daily active players. We look forward to expanding our impact even further through cross-promotion with companies outside of the gaming industry."

The milestones were revealed as day one of PUBG Mobile’s $600,000 Star Challenge Global Finals 2018 drew to a close.

“We are extremely pleased by the fan turnout and look forward to celebrating with the champions soon."
