Head of Corporate Development at Krafton, Sean Hyunil Sohn said during the India Gaming Conference 2021 that the company is trying hard to bring PUBG Mobile back in India. For those unaware, PUBG Mobile was banned in India in September last year along with hundreds of other Chinese apps among cybersecurity concerns.
The game has been banned in the country under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. Since its ban in India, Krafton has been making efforts to re-launch the game in the country given India was among the largest for the game.
Of course, the job listing does not confirm a re-launch of the game in India or anything on those lines, but it surely suggests that the company is trying to expand its team in the country. However, the recent statement by a Krafton representative does hint that PUBG Mobile India could make a comeback soon.
“We are awaiting for Indian government’s consideration and decision on our next plan with PUBG in the region,” according to the Sportskeeda report, which quoted a source at Krafton close to the development.
