At the recent Pocket Gamer Connect digital conference, James Yang, director of PUBG Mobile, said that PUBG Mobile esports generated 200 million hours of viewing in 2020, Pocketgamer.biz reported.
Yang gave a talk on bringing mobile esports to the West at the conference. By hours, PUBG Mobile is the No.4 esports game via hours watched and is the most-watched mobile esports title.
Overall, PUBG Mobile has 15 pro leagues, including those in China, Korea and Japan. “Our pro leagues are expanding globally,” said Yang. There are competitors from more than 170 countries with over 300,000 teams.
The majority of views in 2019, 95.4 percent of the audience came from Asia, which means just 4.6 percent of PUBG Mobile Pro League viewers came from the West.
Yang expressed that even though PMPL has impressive viewership, there is still an opportunity for growth, particularly across the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and the Americas. Some people may believe PC esports to be better than Mobile pro gaming due to better games graphics and being more competitive, among other things. However, this is not a sentiment shared by Yang.
It was found that 70 percent of the esports audience only watch one game, despite playing multiple games themselves. Thus, there is room for another slot in their viewership, should the circumstances be right. “To make one special slot, we need to do more, such as community.”
