PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular multiplayer battle royale games in India. However, the Government of India banned the game over privacy issues of Indian users.
Now, it has been confirmed that PUBG Mobile will be coming back in India soon. It is excellent news of relief for PUBG fans as well as game-streamers’ community.
The main concern regarding the ban of the game was that the data of the Indian users were stored on servers located in foreign countries, mainly China. As the data of the users went outside the country, and the Indian government considered it unsafe and violation of privacy. Hence, the government decided to ban PUBG Mobile along with other Chinese apps which were considered unsafe.
PUBG had a vast user base in India. The company faced huge losses due to the ban of the game in the country. Since then, PUBG Corporation has been in close contact with some Indian companies to set up servers inside the country. So, if the data of all the Indian users will be stored within the country, then the ban will be lifted once the government ensures that the data is stored securely and user’s privacy is safe.
There are rumours that PUBG corporation has even informed some big Indian gamers that the ban on the game might be lifted by the end of 2020. Yesterday, many popular game streamers posted on their Instagram stories about something big coming by the end of the year. Hence, it is assumed that the big thing might be PUBG Mobile finally coming back in India.
According to some other rumours, PUBG corporation has been in close talks with Airtel and Paytm about setting up service in India which has reached advanced stages. We hope that soon there will be an official announcement from the company itself. As soon as there is any major announcement, we will update; till then, fingers crossed.
