The PUBG Corporation, the creator of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds and a subsidiary of South Korea’s Krafton, recently announced that it is preparing to launch the PUBG mobile game back, especially for the Indian crowd. The Indian government previously banned the game in 2020 itself. The PUBG Corporation has also announced that it will promote a safe and healthy environment for the players. It will also help the country to invest in local video games, sports, and entertainment. The release date has not been announced yet, but it is expected that the game will be available in the Play Store very soon.
The Corporation has specific aims so that there will be communication with players and specific localized services. One hundred employers have been granted jobs that will specialize in business, sports, and development. This shows the strengthening of gaming services at this point. Krafton Inc has planned to spend $100 million on the game. It will also be hosting India-exclusive sports events featuring big prize pools, big tournaments, and big productions.

The in-game content will be tailored to reflect local needs, which are mainly designed for Indian gamers. The game will be set in a virtual simulation training ground, entirely new clothed players, and reflect the game’s virtual nature. It will also include a feature that places game time restrictions to promote healthy gameplay habits for younger players.
PUBG Mobile was banned in India under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act on the 2nd of September 2020. The ban was that the app has been engaging in activities that are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity, defense, and security of the country and mainly because it was an app created by China. The prime minister also suggested that the game is too violent and has hampered children’s and teenagers’ lives.
The country was pretty disappointed with the banning of the game. Thus, the announcement of the game has been considered pretty good news for the whole country.
