We have previously covered The complete story of PUBG Getting Banned in India where we’ve described how the game actually got banned in India citing the security and sovereignty risks for the country of India. From 30th October PUBG Mobile had terminated access to its users in India. They had mentioned that they were saddened by the outcome and they always respected the data protection laws of India.
PUBG has a huge player base in India but, the PUBG mobile app had got banned in this region. So, PUBG has been trying to unban the game and make it accessible to the players. There are speculations that the game might be made accessible soon, but there have been no official statements yet. Or, a newer form of PUBG might be available in India. We’ll need to wait and watch further developments on it.
