PUBG Mobile Comeback : Rumors floating PUBG launching tonite, but where are the government permissions ?
PUBG Mobile Comeback : On 12th November PUBG Mobile had officially announced the latest update on unban that they are coming back to India very soon and in a new avatar. Since then speculation is rife on different timelines for the launch.
Latest being, that PUBG is launching tonite.
“Countdown begins. Few hours to go!,” the tweet from PUBG Mobile India fan club account reads. A picture has been included in the teaser, which showed that the game will be available on Google Play Store and for APK download separately with-in next few hours.
Since the tweet came in, the players are going berserk on internet in an anticipation of the launch tonite.
But InsideSport wants to clear that neither the Corporation nor any one associated with the game has officially announced the timeline of the launch. It is highly unlikely that the game will be launched without any official intimation by the promoters or the Indian government.
Just check this. In the last 1 week 3 official announcements have been made by the Corporation –
First on – 12th Nov PUBG Coming Soon announced PUBG Corporation. Official release was done of the comeback attempt. The release talked about how PUBG Corporation will be taking measures to secure the data of users.
The release was a clear attempt by the promoters of the game to appease the Indian government that all will be taken care off as per their policies.
Despite the release, no one from the ministry came on record to suggest that the game will be allowed to comeback in different format.
Second on – 14th Nov on Diwali the corporation again released a creative on Instagram saying PUBG Mobile Coming Soon
Again no timelines
Third on 14th Nov – Trailer launched – Again this was just an attempt by the Corporation to excite the market. No concrete launch dates were given.
PUBG fraternity since then has been speculating endlessly on the launch date. Such is the situation that unknown source started a pre-registration page on Tap Tap which after 250,000 registrations is now shut-down with no one knows anything about its whereabouts.
PUBG Mobile Comeback : Is the launch possible without taking permissions from the ministry which had banned it ?
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) that had announced a ban on PUBG and 116 other Chinese apps in September stays unfazed and is yet to officially give any relaxation to PUBG.
According to a report recently by TOI, Government sources remained unfazed. “Unless they address the concerns, it will be difficult to grant any relaxation,” they said.
In a bid to satisfy Indian regulators, PUBG Corp said it is working to provide “a secure and healthy gameplay environment” with the new version. “With privacy and security of Indian player data being a top priority, the company will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed,” PUBG Corp said.
The big question now is – will ministry agree to UNBAN PUBG ? It is clear that MEITY is yet to give their go ahead to the Corporation to launch a new game.
According to one of the expert in the field, ‘the game was banned back in September by the Indian government and until or unless they don’t give any relaxation the game can’t make a comeback in India. All these attempts are purely to pacify the government and excite the market’
Whatever rumor-mill says, the reality is that the official permissions from the government and the official announcement by PUBG Corporation on exact timelines for the launch still stays pending.
