The South Korean company, Crafton said that it will close the PUBG Lite game on April 29, as the company that publishes the game has suspended new downloads of the PC-based game, and the official website has actually been closed, and player support will end on May 29.
The end of April will be an occasion to deprive many of the widespread version of the game with the closure of PUBG Lite, the free-to-play version of the battle of life and death intended for lower-level devices.
Crafton did not provide a reason for the impending shutdown, but there were signs of unrest months in advance. The decision to turn off the Lite will not affect PUBG Mobile Lite, the phone-oriented equivalent, as this game will remain the same.
We are extremely grateful for the passion and support of the astonishing number of PUBG LITE fans who have been with us, and during the difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic, we hope PUBG LITE will be able to provide our fans with an enjoyable way to stay safe. We made the difficult decision to close the service after much deliberation, and it is time for our journey to end, and we, unfortunately, tell you that PUBG LITE is scheduled to end on April 29, 2021.
The news of the closure came after the game's publisher announced, last November, that PUBG Lite had become completely free, after abandoning the in-game currency system L-Coin, and the game was launched in the beta version in January 2019 in Thailand and moved to Europe In October of the same year.
