PUBG Mobile fans who are waiting for the battle royale to make a comeback, we have some bad news for you.

It looks like the ban on the game is not getting revoked for a few more months at least and sources from PUBG have told InsideSport that the matter is not getting resolved any time soon.

According to an official who has been closely following the developments on PUBG’s end, the efforts made by PUBG were “earnest” but there has been no “headwind or progress” in the matter. The game is not making a comeback in India for the next few months, at least not before March 2021, the official said.
