Since its launch in 2017, PUBG has won numerous awards, including 7 Guinness World Records and several Game of the Year awards.
This time, PUBG’s designer, Crofton, is seeking to grow into more than just a game, with an initial public offering in South Korea.
The company “Crafton” hopes to raise $ 5 billion through the offering, which is expected to be the largest in South Korea.
It is expected that “Crafton” will offer more than 10 million shares at a price ranging from $ 420 to $ 500 per share.
PUBG was released on March 23, 2017, on PC and Xbox, and reached its peak in 2018, when it occupied mobile devices.
The PUBG game is based on the “survival of the fittest” rule, as it starts with 100 players and ends with the victory of one player or team.
PUBG has sold more than 70 million copies, making it one of the best-selling video games of all time, and has been downloaded on mobile phones more than a billion times outside of China.
During the past few months, the world’s governments rose up against the fighting game “Bubji”, after the game turned from a means of fun to a platform for killing.
And the number of victims of the game since its appearance, whether by suicide or murder, has reached 9 cases around the world.
Egypt came on top of the countries that witnessed the most accidents, with 4 cases, then India in second place with two cases, and Nepal, Saudi Arabia and Iraq with one case.
After the high number of victims of the Buggy game, the governments of 9 countries resorted to banning the game, and it even came to the religious prohibition of the game in some countries.
