PUBG MOBILE has been teasing a collaboration with hit K-pop group BLACKPINK on Instagram and Twitter for the past few days. PUBG Mobile tweeted out the following on 14th September.
The now-viral tweet shows a pink colour-themed graphic featuring a girl with bangs, bubblegum pink hair, pink glasses with the caption that reads, “Guess who is coming”. Many suspect this to be BLACKPINK’s Lisa, due to the figure’s signature bangs. PUBG Mobile followed this up with a tweet on 15th September featuring four characters in a pink car. The iconic PUBG level 3 helmet is visible along with a heart-shaped pink hammer.
The game continued to hype up the reveal, finally tweeting out this yesterday:
Here we see four silhouetted figures, with the caption, “The stage is all set. Let's hit it!” further fueling the rumours that it is indeed BLACKPINK which will be appearing in PUBG Mobile in some capacity. The PUBG Mobile Thailand Instagram page also posted this image:
