This same report also quoted the head of corporate development at Krafton, Sean Hyunil Sohn who had an update to sage regarding PUBG Mobile's comeback during the Indian Gaming Conference 2021. 

“I cannot tell the timing or anything because we don’t know yet. But what I can tell you is, we care about the Indian market greatly and also that’s how I get to know you and get to know friends in the Indian gaming industry now. So definitely, we will work hard to make it happen,” Sohn reportedly said.

Krafton has also said that since their focus is on relaunching the game in India, they will not be opening the pre-registration for PUBG: New State here. The new iteration of PUBG Mobile - PUBG: New State was announced recently on both the App Store and the Google Play Store.
