For those who were frustrated when PUBG banned the mobile game, this announcement is now good news for them. Users have been flooded with memes on social media as they can’t wait to play their favorite game.
In fact, last year the Indian government banned 118 apps related to China. This includes PUBG Mobile. The reason behind the move is alleged to be that these applications are stealing data and sending data illegally to servers located outside the country. Crafton’s subsidiary after the ban PUBG Corporation PUBG Mobile has acquired the publishing and distribution rights from Chinese company Tencent Games.
Now Crafton claims that this new game complies with all Indian laws and regulations. In case of collection and storage of data from players, it is subject to Indian rules. It is also said that now Crafton will collaborate with its partners to create an e-sports ecosystem so that it will launch India-specific in-game events at launch.
After the game was banned in September, the South Korean agency made several attempts to get the ban lifted by the Indian government and tried to persuade the government. The company was also ready to localize the data and a dedicated team of 100 people from India was also ready to create it.
