PUBG Mobile April 8 Update: All you need to know about PUBG Mobile India game release date: Since the Indian government banned PUBG Mobile due to data privacy concerns, millions of PUBG gamers are waiting for any update on the game status in India. Now, if Luv Sharma, a PUBG Mobile content creator, is to be believed, gamers are in for some good news. Sharma has claimed that the Indian government has approved the game for a relaunch.
The primary concern has been the ownership of Chinese giant Tencent and its alleged data transfer to servers in Mainland China. However, recently, PUBG Corporation, the game developer, has joined hands with Microsoft Azure to host the game sessions. In doing so, PUBG Corporation can address the concern the government has had.
Furthermore, PUBG Corp also posted job openings for Investment and Strategy Analyst on LinkedIn and that could be a positive sign of things to normalise. The person would be heading mergers and acquisitions and that has hinted at a relaunch of PUBG Mobile in India soon.
Another PUBG Mobile pro gamer Abhijeet Andhare, also known as Ghatak, has also given a hint of some positive news. He claimed that PUBG Mobile gamers in India would be treated with some exciting news.
“According to sources, the government has given the green signal for the comeback of PUBG Mobile. However, the exact release date nor the month haven’t been finalized, but the game will indeed be returning. Some of the popular content creators, including Ghatak, had posted stories, dropping hints regarding the return.”
“I didn’t want to reveal this but it’s your love that I could not refrain myself. The next two months are very good for PUBG lovers and so much interesting news will be coming soon for TSM lovers,” Andhare, who is a member of the TSM eSports team, said on Twitter.
The report also quoted the Head of Corporate Development at Krafton, Sean Hyunil Sohn, who gave an update on PUBG Mobile’s comeback during the India Gaming Conference 2021. “I cannot tell the timing or anything because we don’t know yet. But what I can tell you is, we care about the Indian market greatly and also that’s how I get to know you and get to know friends in the Indian gaming industry now. So definitely, we will work hard to make it happen,” Sohn reportedly said.
