The Applications PUBG Mobile and the PUBG Mobile Lite along with many of the Chinese applications had been banned in India since September 2020. The Indian online gamers are waiting from a long time for the official launch of PUBG mobile. Many of the Indian Youtubers were involved in this game and used to stream live showing their performances with a new level of skills using multiple fingers along with thumbs, represent the talent and the level of brain utilization of Indian gamers. But after the ban of PUBG Mobile everybody is waiting for the re-launch of the official PUBG Mobile Indian version since January 2021 that was being expected for its comeback, but brought no any good news.
As with the help of RTI filed by ‘Gem wire’ we got to know that the PUBG hasn’t been banned in India, only the PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite apps got banned. If still people want to play PUBG then they can play PC supported PUBG that is PUBG_PC; PUBG PC hasn’t been banned by the Indian Government. PUBG_PC has given many of the gamers a quite relax for those majorly used to play on PC instead of playing it via mobile app. The servers of PUBG have been shut down for the PUBG Mobile App.
Everybody is now eagerly looking with a hope of PUBG Mobile’s re-launch in India or the topic is quite hot about when the PUBG get back in India? So, everybody is waiting for the PUBG game to re-launch in India in this year 2021. It is heard that Krafton is going to merge with PUBG Mobile to re-launch it in Indian market and the companies are working to launch the Indian version of PUBG Mobile in India with an option to choose the language as hindi, that will give another level of experience to users.
PUBG Mobile is going to release in Indian market soon is expected because only the app has been banned but PUBG_PC is still running and Krafton is also working with the PUBG mobile India Ltd company for its redesign and re-launch by boycotting all the features that are not as per the Government norms. PUBG team is approaching to the Government for the re-launch of PUBG in India with some modifications that might government can approve but still there is no any needful conclusion has been initiated from the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, India.
The PUBG Mobile in India was banned due to security reasons by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, India under section 69A of Information Technology Act. So, removing ban could be a long process/procedure for the PUBG Mobile till the Gaming Company proves that individual’s security breach isn’t a part of PUBG Mobile and is safe to play.
Till then still it’s a big question to us whether in 2021 the PUBG would come back in India or not? Is PUBG Mobile going to be re-launched in India or not? So, we have to wait till all the issues from the government side gets clear regarding the re-launch of the game. Till then PUBG_PC could be a good option for those whose still want to play the PUBG, because no restrictions in India have been made against it yet. We hope in 2021 to hear the news soon as “PUBG Mobile re-launched in India” or “PUBG Mobile is back in India” officially.
