PUBG Lite is one of the many versions of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. However, it is a low-end version of the battle royale game PUBG. It is tailor-made for low-specced PCs and laptops. The news of its’ shutdown comes after the confirmation by the developers Krafton via a message on its official website. Moreover, the process is already starting with its official website shutting down.
On April 29th, PUBG Lite will be at the end of service, after which the game will no longer be playable. Moreover, after May 29th, all player support services for it will be shut down. PUBG Lite Facebook will be open even after the game service termination until further notice.
We are deeply grateful for the passion and support from the astounding number of PUBG LITE fans that have been with us. During the strenuous times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that LITE was able to provide our fans a fun way to stay safe. Unfortunately, the difficult decision to close service comes after much deliberation. The time has come for our journey to end. We regretfully inform you that the service of PUBG LITE is scheduled to end on April 29th, 2021 (UTC).Krafton says
There is no mention of why it is pulling the plug on PUBG Lite. However, we can assume a lack of player interest to play a major role in it. PUBG is already well-optimized and runs on a wide range of devices. With modern-day smartphones becoming increasingly powerful, they have no difficulties running PUBG Mobile, thereby rendering PUBG Lite redundant.
Besides, the company could use all the server space it can get once PUBG: New State is out and about.
