Introducing esports to a game that is competitive by nature, can be one of the best decisions from the side of the company if it plays out correctly. The biggest example is none other than, another game from the PUBG franchise, the global gaming giant PUBG Mobile.

PUBG Mobile, after its release in the last quarter of 2017, organized its first-ever esports tournament in 2018 and the first World Championship, PMSC 2018. It has been riding on a graph, that has been growing upwards since then. Almost 5 years after the game has been released, its Esports value, in terms of money, is giving a fight to renowned PC games. The PMGC 2021 is having one of the highest Prize Pools for a tournament in Esports history. New State looks like they are also following the same path, and we just can’t wait to get started.

New State officials told during the official release of the game that once the game becomes optimized enough and the post-release issues get sorted out, there will be announcements made to introduce an Esports ecosystem. Thus, the plans have come to fruition.
