Though confirmed, the creators of the game haven’t set an official date for the release of the game in India and said that “more information on the launch of PUBG MOBILE INDIA will be released at a later date.”
Earlier, China’s Tencent Games operated in India under a licence, but after the company was unable to suffice with the Indian laws, PUBG corporation stated that it will revoke distribution rights for the game in India from Tencent.
PUBG Corporation will directly operate the PUBG Mobile India.
Directly operating the game solves the key problem of Chinese ownership, though it’s unclear whether the Indian government will indeed permit it, reported Livemint.
PUBG Mobile was banned by the Indian government on 4 September citing security issues. It was one of the most popular mobile multiplayer game with over 50 million daily active users.
