PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI) back in 2022

the PUBG-Mobile World Invitational (PMWI) is set to return in 2022, the Twitter account of PUBG-Mobile Esports confirmed.

When Tencent announced the official roadmap for 2022, there was no mention of PMWI. Instead, the company said a “mid-season championship” would take place in June. It seems that this championship is the PMWI.

In the tweet, Tencent said “exciting news” will be coming in June. It was also revealed that Sony Xperia would be the Invitational’s official smartphone partner. This means players will likely need to use a Sony Xperia smartphone when competing in the PMWI. No other details have yet been revealed.

The top teams from the PMPL Spring Regional Championships will likely move on to the PMWI. These take place in May and June and are divided into five regions: South Asia, Southeast Asia, Middle East and Africa, Europe and Americas. With the last of them ending on June 12, the PMWI is expected to take place after that.

The PMWI was first introduced last year. Its first edition featured a total charity prize pool of $3 million. It was conducted in collaboration with Gamers Without Borders and the prize money was distributed to charities chosen by the teams. PMWI 2021 was held separately for East and West regions. It is unclear whether the 2022 edition will also follow a similar format.
