PUBG Mobile India launch: 4 important things that have recently happened
We know that PUBG Corp has gotten its India return blueprint down and is working towards getting the much-loved battle royale, PUBG Mobile, back to India as PUBG Mobile India. There have been reports suggesting that the game might launch by the first week of December, but other reports suggest that the wait might be longer.
While we still try to zero in on a date, here are some important things that have happened around the PUBG Mobile India launch in the meanwhile -
No permission from MeitY yet
Going by a report from InsideSport, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has not granted permission to PUBG Mobile India to start operating in the country.
Just to remind you, PUBG Corp set up the Indian subsidiary for PUBG Mobile India recently and it is a registered company.
The report quotes sources who said that any banned entity cannot start operations by just floating a new company. They will need to get permissions from MeitY to operate in India.
A registered company but no launch date yet
PUBG Corp registered the new company recently and it is called PUBG India Pvt Ltd. The company is registered in Bengaluru.
December first week date might be incorrect
Recent reports indicated that the new battle royale might be launched as early as the first week of December, between December 1 and December 5, however, the company itself is yet to officially announce anything.
The deal with Microsoft Azure
This happened a while ago, but it’s important in the scheme of things. Krafton, PUBG Corp’s parent company, signed a deal with Microsoft Azure for it to host the PUBG games. This clearly indicates that the PUBG Corp is looking to reduce Chinese connections.
