PUBG Mobile India version was announced weeks before and yet there’s no intel about the release date of the game yet. Why?
The ban of PUBG mobile in India has not only affected the gaming community but also the esports ecosystem here. Fans were excitedly waiting since then for the relaunch of the game in India. Until 12th November, when PUBG Corp made a major announcement teasing the revival of PUBG Mobile as ‘PUBG Mobile India’.
PUBG Corp joined hands with Microsoft Azure to host PUBG Mobile back in India.
PUBG Corporation officially revealed relaunch of the game in India with special Indian-specific version. Indian PUBG Mobile version will be different from the global version.
The company also released the game teaser, official website, Youtube & Facebook account and registered as country’s private limited company recently.
PUBG Mobile India has been delayed infinitely. The latest reports say PUBG Mobile India is yet to launch as they’re seeking official permission from MEITY.
PUBG Mobile India Government response
The only reason speculated for the delay, is due to the Indian government’s response. PUBG Mobile India is yet to receive a response from the ministry, according to Inside Sport.
“Government is yet to respond to the request for the meeting. The game promoters are ready to comply to all norms set by the Indian government – but no response has comeback from the MEITY office.” –sources from Inside Sport. The report also reads, “No permission to PUBG to operate in India as yet.”
This response has laid too many questions and fans are eagerly waiting for an official update from PUBG mobile team. It is been so long since the relaunch announcement, but fans are helpless and stubborn. At this moment, all we can do is wish for PUBG Mobile India to return soon.
