Several reports circulating on the internet suggest that the PUBG Mobile India mobile game will re-launch in India very soon. In fact, some reports also reveal that the battle royale game will release officially later this year, possible in the next few months or so.
While the launch timeline is yet to be officially confirmed, what makes the coming of the PUBG Mobile India even more evident is the job listings on Microsoft’s Linkedin. Currently, as many as six job listings are listed under PUBG Corporation, which hints at the battle royale game’s imminent launch.
PUBG Corporation hiring in India
As far as the Linkedin job listings are concerned, PUBG Corporation is hiring for the position of senior marketing manager – India, product manager – India, Associated Director, publishing business operations – India, Video Editor – India, and Investment & Strategy Analyst – India. This clearly hints that the company is working hard to bring back PUBG Mobile in the country very soon.
PUBG Mobile India coming soon?
Tencent’s PUBG Mobile was banned in the country last year alongside hundreds of other Chinese apps under the Section 69A of the Information Technology (IT) Act. Few months after the battle royale game was banned in the country, PUBG Corporation announced to bring it back as PUBG Mobile India. Some of the other Chinese apps that are banned in India including TikTok, Camscanner, among others.
The Indian version of the battle royale game has been teased by the company several times in the past. PUBG Corporation, in fact, revealed that the Indian version of the mobile game will be customised as per the government’s instructions. The company also highlighted that users’ security and privacy will be their utmost priority, which was the major reason why the popular mobile game was banned in the country.
Recently, reports related to the launch of PUBG Mobile India suggest that Krafton is in talks with the Indian government to bring the game back to the country. To bring the mobile game back to the country the company will first need to meet the concerns raised by the Indian government.
Currently, neither the company nor the government of India revealed official details related to the release of the Indian version of the battle royale game.
