Tencent replaces PUBG with patriotic game in China

Chinese tech giant Tencent has shut down its famous PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) mobile game in China after it failed to secure a government license to monitise the game.

The company has now replaced PUBG with a government-friendly alternative — an anti-terrorist themed game named “Heping Jingying” or “Game for Peace” without much violance, TechNode reported on Wednesday.
