The PUBG New State is bricking android devices, some users have reported on social media. The issue seems to have impacted especially those users who are using android 12.

The bricking issue has emerged just hours after PUBG New State was released in more than 200 countries including India. The new game is touted to deliver a next generation battle royal experience to gamers. It was announced in February and is obtainable for download on android for download on android iPhone and iPad.
Among other affected user’s tipster Mukul Sharma tweeted to report the bricking issue after installing PUBG New State. Sharma said that while he was able to recover his OPPO Find X2 Pro the game hard bricked his device running on android 12 which was not booting up.
He noted in his report by 91 mobiles that the problem surfaces when PUBG New State prompts users to sign in, either as a guest or using a social account.

Tapping on any of the three buttons turned out to be a nightmare and the device entered boot loop for a couple of minutes. Post that, things became worse as the device completely froze and is well a brick for now.
The bricking issue is, however, not all pervasive at this moment thankfully. We were able to load the game fully and play it on an android 12 running pixel 4a.
