Blocking stuff is a complicated thing.
You can block DNS used by program, but this can be passed by changing DNS server.
Even a forced DNS may be passed by adding DNS to host file.
Blocking IP used by the game may block other needed stuff on the same server.
VPN can be used to bypass various blocking.

Here are the IP ranges used by PUBG. I would not recommend blocking it.

Most business have employees sign an internet use form.
a. though shalt not store or view porn on pc (most companies lock down the ability to load programs anyway)
b. though shalt not give any company information
c. though shalt not use company PCs for personal business other than banking or whatever is deemed reasonable
d. though shalt not play games on company time
e. though shalt not load programs on company computer (required software shall be approved and installed by IT manager)

Breaking rules a-d, gets you
a. one warning + counselling by supervisor
b. second warningm+ $2000 fine counselling by head of HR or president
c. fired!!

In this way you get to keep responsible employees.
With the proceeds from b. you can buy more MT products and Normis will be happy and may be able to afford an apartment instead of living in his red car!
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)
