Indian Government has been banned PUBG Mobile under section 69A of the IT Act alongside hundreds of other Chinese apps in Sept 2020.
The Chinese app was blocked due to security and privacy reasons. But, PUBG Corp has been trying hard to bring back the game to the millions of its players in the country.
The government reportedly feared that the Chinese developer of the game, Tencent, sends crucial user data of Indian players to China. PUBG Mobile, however, claimed that user data are completely secured.
Addressing concerns raised by the Indian government, PUBG at the time of announcing the Indian version of the game dubbed PUBG Mobile India, said that they are building servers within India to host and also store user data in the country itself.
The company also said it has plans to hire people in India in order to setup operations in the country.
PUBG Mobile needs to meet the concerns raised by the government, convince the authorities to lift the ban. Once that is done, the game has chances of arrive in India.
PUBG Corporation has requested to host a meeting with the authorities but didn’t get any response yet. This hints that the Indian government is in no mood to lift the ban for now.
Things may change later, depending on the changes the company brings to the game.
The company released an official teaser and said that users’ privacy and security will be of the “utmost” importance. They also said that the game will relaunch in India soon and will be tailored as per Indian players.
