PUBG Mobile’s parent company, Krafton, is looking for an investment strategy analyst in India and has posted a job listing on LinkedIn regarding that. The job listing appeared on LinkedIn on March 18 around midnight and the company seems to have stopped accepting applications for it now.

Indian fans have taken this as a piece of good news and have gotten super excited. They have been waiting for PUBG Mobile to return to India ever since it was banned by the Indian government in September last year.

PUBG Corporation, a subsidiary of Krafton which owns the intellectual property rights to the PUBG Mobile game, announced in November that they would be launching a new game exclusively for India to circumvent the ban. PUBG Mobile India, if and when it launches, is going to be operated by PUBG Corporation, keeping China’s Tencent Games out of the picture entirely.

PUBG Corporation removed IP rights from Tencent shortly after the ban in India with one singular aim to restart operations here. In November last year, following the announcement regarding PUBG Mobile India, the company said they are going to set up an Indian subsidiary to improve communications and services in the country and they were also going to hire over a 100 employees here and create a local office. Around the same time, a job listing for a corporate development division manager was spotted on LinkedIn.

The latest job posting, which is for the investment strategy analyst, is expected to help the company analyse mergers, acquisitions and investment opportunities in India. Krafton had mentioned earlier that it has plans of investing $100 million in the country to cultivate “local video game, esports, entertainment and IT industries" and they also plan to host esports tournaments here.

They have also joined hands with Microsoft to host the games on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform going forward.

As far as how things stand right now, we are yet to receive any reliable information or news about PUBG Mobile’s India return, but here’s hoping.
