PUBG Mobile updates
The battle royale game was banned in India in the month of September last year alongside hundreds other Chinese applications. Both PUBG Mobile and the Lite version of the app are not available in the country tight now.
By the end of 2020, the company announced the Indian version of the game dubbed PUBG Mobile India. Back in December, the company said that the new Indian version of the game will be available for players very soon. However, the company didn’t reveal the re-launch date.
In the last few months, several reports have surfaced on the internet stating that PUBG Corporation is in talks with the Indian government and working towards meeting all concerns raised by the authorities. The process is still on. The company has already said, that the PUBG Mobile India will be a tailored version and include updates required specifically by Indian players and government.
Coming back to the question, will PUBG Mobile India launch today? The answer will be, no. Absolutely not. The game will take more time to launch in the country. PUBG Mobile will only be able to go official once the Indian government approves.
Meanwhile, PUBG Mobile’s India’s rival FAU-G is gearing up to launch in the country on Republic Day, January 26. The action game will first release for Android users later followed by iPhone users.
