When will PUBG Mobile season 17 start?

The developer has yet to reveal an official release date for PUBG Mobile‘s season 17, but its date can be guessed by checking season 16’s countdown.

The current season will end on Jan. 17, according to the countdown, and the RP section will be closed for 24 hours afterward.

Considering the usual release schedule of the developer, season 17 will likely launch on Jan. 19. The exact release time of the update is unknown, however, and some bugs could delay the maintenance that will follow the patch’s introduction.

Meanwhile, the Frost Festival event is still offering various rewards for completing challenges in the dedicated game mode, which alters the Erangel map in the classic game mode with winter-themed features.

The Magic Xmas event also offers various rewards and players still have a few weeks to complete all tiers of season 16’s battle pass called Endless Oblivion.
