PUBG Mobile – India Relaunch: PUBG Mobile is working hard to somehow bring the game back in India. According to a Krafton Inc representative they are in talks with Indian government and awaiting their approvals and feedback for the relaunch of PUBG Mobile in India.
“We are awaiting for Indian government’s consideration and decision on our next plan with PUBG in the region,” the report by Sportskeeda quoted a Krafton communications representative as saying.
The report also quoted 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.
PUBG Mobile: Krafton not to open Pre-Registration for PUBG New State in India to avoid any complications
The game’s publisher has also said that since their focus is on relaunching the game in India, they will not open the pre-registration for PUBG: New State in the country. The new PUBG game was recently announced globally on both Google Play and the App Store.
As per the report, a Krafton official said that the company is doing everything to bring the game back in India. “With Krafton doing everything it can to prepare for the launch of a new PUBG app specifically developed and serviced for India, it has decided not to include pre-registration for PUBG: New State in India”.
PUBG Mobile India was banned in India last year in September due to anti-China sentiment which led to Indian Government banning various Chinese apps. Since than various attempts have been made by PUBG promoters to relaunch themselves in India – but the same hasn’t materialized.
The PUBG promoters even changed the ownership of the company in India, started new entity with Indian directors but they failed to get any positive reply from the Indian government.
Now with Krafton INC getting very active some hope for PUBG Relaunch in India again has been rekindled.
