PUBG fans in India might soon receive some good news. If a few recent media reports and speculations in the gaming circles are to be believed, ‘PUBG Mobile India’ may be launched today.

Hopes soared high on Monday when a lot of buzz about the release date and relaunch of the game had spread like wildfire on social media.  However, there has been no confirmation yet. 

But here are a few details about the potential release date and how the game has been modified specifically for Indian users-

According to revelations by game developers in mid-November, there are some major changes, specifically made for the Indian market. The new game will be available with features like fully dressed characters, less gory visuals, etc.

The new teasers of the game can be seen on the PUBG Mobile India website and its official YouTube and Instagram pages.

PUBG India Market

India accounted for a significant portion of PUBG MOBILE's downloads and users.

Days after the government ban, PUBG had announced that Chinese company Tencent Games would no longer be authorised to distribute the PUBG MOBILE franchise in India.

The controversy surrounding the game

Previously in December, India's apex child rights body NCPCR denied permission on grounds of human safety. The NCPCR in a meeting said it is not in favour of recommending such games in the country, pointing out the game led to the loss of many lives in the country.

The Indian government also cited national security concerns while banning the game.
