OGN, South Korea's cable television channel specializing in esports tournaments, has taken notice of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds with their new plans of a 100 PC battle arena studio solely for PUBG.
This is a great step for the arena battle royale game as they claim sure footing in one of the world's leading countries in esports.
OGN, formerly known as Ongamenet, started out as a television program to cover the raising popularity of StarCraft in South Korea during the year 2000.
OGN has since then grown into an esports titan, covering big titles such as League of Legends and Overwatch.
Reports came in from Naver Esports and Daily esports that the proposed PUBG arena is set for construction in Ilsan, South Korea. The upcoming studio will be the site of OGN's unnamed PlayerUnkown's Battlegrounds league some time in 2018.
PUBG gained peak popularity in South Korea back in August of 2017 by edging out Overwatch as the second most popular game in PC gaming cafes across South Korea.
OGN's recognition of PUBG's potential as an esport and their commitment to invest in the budding game is a clear sign that their developers are heading in the right direction should their aim be organized, competitive play.
Official updates beside the 100-player studio construction have yet to be announced by OGN. We'll be sure to keep you all updated as soon as the the official announcement arrives. In the meanwhile, keep trying to shoot your way to a chicken dinner.
