PUBG Mobile Unban: Is PUBG Releasing this Year? More than seven months have passed since PUBG Mobile was banned in India. While some has shifted their interest towards other games, a majority of gamers are still hopeful for the game’s return. However many Esports organizations have shut down their operation in India as there was no assurance given from the government regarding PUBG’s unban.
While there’s no official statement from both Krafton or the Government, certain possibilities of the game’s return have popped up due to constant job listings & other updates about the company. Recently, the company has posted major job listings on LinkedIn for professionals. The role of an Associate Director for Publishing Business Operations can be found on the list. Another role of a Senior Marketing Manager is mentioned as well.
This can only imply that the company is doubling down its efforts for a comeback & it will resume its operations on a larger scale once the government waives the green signal. While there has been no shortage of false rumours & misleading information regarding the release of PUBG Mobile India, this certainly is something to be hopeful for. Despite all these, there’s still no response from the government, suggested by sources.
Furthermore, PUBG Corp also posted job openings for Investment and Strategy Analyst on LinkedIn which is another ray of hope. The person would be in charge of heading mergers and acquisitions. With constant job listing, it is certain that PUBG Mobile is doubling down its efforts to restore the game to its former glory.
