Since the ban of the game, Krafton has taken various steps to make sure that it can get PUBG Mobile back in the hands of Indian users as soon as possible.
According to a detailed press release from the Korean company last month, its subsidiary, PUBG Corporation, was preparing to launch the game, dubbed PUBG Mobile India, again. It added that the game was being created to cater to the needs of the Indian market.
PUBG Mobile India also released the first official teasers for the game on November 14th, featuring three PUBG Mobile influencers — Dynamo, Kronten, and Jonathan. However, PUBG Mobile hasn’t announced any official release date for the Indian version of the game.
Indian fans have eagerly been waiting for the release of the Indian version of this famous battle royale title, which has helped the growth of Indian gaming and esports as a whole.
