PUBG Mobile India version dubbed Battlegrounds Mobile India is set to release in India soon.

If we go back to last year, the PUBG Mobile game was banned after the government doubted that the Chinese mobile gaming app sends crucial user data to the Chinese government. As Battlegrounds Mobile India is developed by the same developer as PUBG Mobile – Krafton, Indian ministers are questioning the upcoming game and privacy and security policies around it.
At the time of announcing the coming of Battlegrounds Mobile India earlier this year, Krafton clearly stated the privacy and security policies of the game. Time and again, the game developer has revealed that security and privacy of users are their utmost priority. Krafton has also said that users data collected by Krafton will be stored in servers within India and Singapore.
Currently, Krafton is gearing up to launch the Battlegrounds Mobile India in the country soon. The company is releasing new teasers almost every other day and the latest one hints at June 18 as the launch date for the game.
