PUBG Continental Series received a lot of attention which prompted PUBG Corp to announce PCS3 even before PCS2's conclusion.
PCS3 will follow the conventional rules of the tournaments of its kind. It will kick off with four regional tournaments across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Asia. Teams will be vying for the top spots in their regions inorder to win a lion's share in the regional $200,000 prize pool, meaning $800,000 in total across the four regions.
As a result, PCS2 has received an extension for the upcoming finals in September 2020. It was meant to be played across two weeks originally but now it will be expanded to 24 matches per region, with four matches played each day over the course of three weeks.
The new schedule is as follows:
North Amerca: August 27-28, September 3-4, September 10-11
Europe: August 29-30, September 5-6, September 12-13
Asia-Pacific: August 29-30, September 5-6, September 12-13
Asia: August 27-28, September 3-4, September 8--9
Each region will have their qualifying rounds before the finals, which will run until August 16. PCS2 Europe's group stage will have some of the best teams around such as FaZe Clan, TSM, Team Liquid, ENCE, Na'V and Raise Your Edge.
These qualifying rounds will take place over two weekends, one starting on August 7 and the other on August 14. Matches will be starting at 5:00 PM BST / 6:00 PM CEST each of the three days per week.
