Recently, PUBG Mobile announced the 2022 Esports roadmap for the game. James Yang, the Director of Esports at Tencent, unveiled the new roadmap, called PUBG Mobile Esports 2.0, during the first day of the Global Championship (PMGC) 2021 Finals.
PUBG Mobile Esports 2022 Roadmap
The new roadmap brings with it a number of changes to the already existing system – more focused on the grassroots level with national and regional championships. The Club Open, also known as PMCO and other PUBG mobile IPs such as the PMCC (Campus Championships) and PMNC (Regional and National Championships), will act as the first step for the PMPLs (Pro Leagues).
As part of the changes, PMCO will not provide qualifications for PMPLs, but teams competing in the PMCOs will first have to go through the PMNCs and other regional tournaments. The PMNCs will also serve as a gateway for qualification for the 2023 PMPLs.

New PMCO has been introduced on a broader and more regional scale. In 2022, the set of PMCOs will look like this:
- PMCO: South America
- PMCO: Europe
- PMCO: Asia
- PMCO: Middle East
- PMCO: Africa
From 2022, the company plans to bring the PMNCs in 11 countries and regional cups in 8 regions around the world.
Pro Circuit Changes
The PMPL is currently being conducted under the banner of EMEA, MENA and SA and will now be classified as PMPL Europe, South Asia, Middle East and Africa. Most of the pro circuit will function as is; however, Pro leagues (PMPLs) have been introduced in the Africa and Pakistan regions.
In addition, the months of January to June will feature the spring season while the fall season will occur between July and November. The Mid Season Championship (MSC) and the PMGC 2022 will be played between that period and at the end of the splits, respectively.
PUBG Mobile is being touted as a medal sport in this year’s SEA Games and the Asian Games that will take place in May and September. Players get the chance to represent their country on the highest possible podium.
