PUBG Mobile was banned in India back in the month of September last year alongside several other Chinese applications. Since the ban, PUBG has been working towards meeting all concerns raised by the government and re-release the mobile game in the country.
In December last year, PUBG Corporation announced the coming of PUBG Mobile India, a customised version of the original battle royale game. The Indian version of the game will be served within the country and aspects such as security and privacy will be the key focus areas, the company had confirmed at the announcement.
