PUBG Mobile, which has been banned in India since last September, is preparing to re-enter the market. PUBG Mobile is one of the highest downloaded games in India with over 175 million. A total of 118 apps, including PUBG Mobile, were shut down by India’s Electronics and IT department after tensions on the Sino-Indian border. Gambling addiction has been a concern among Indian society since before the official ban on PUBG Mobile in the country.
PUBG Corporation has announced plans to re-enter the Indian market under the name PUBG Mobile India. According to GSMArena, the new version will include in-game content changes and customization features that reflect the tastes of local game users.
Importantly, PUBG Mobile India aims to be more transparent in handling user data in accordance with local regulations. PUBG Corporation recently acquired patents for publishing rights in India from Tencent.
PUBG Mobile India is a game specially designed for the Indian market and will perform regular audits for data security and data storage systems on a regular basis. KRAFTON Inc., the parent company of PUBG Corporation, also plans to invest $ 100 million (Rs 746 crore) in the Indian market.
The company is also preparing to hire 100 employees from India to provide gaming services. Later, e-Sports competitions and entertainment programs will be held in India. The exact release date of PUBG Mobile India is unknown.
