PUBG Mobile India will launch as Battlegrounds Mobile India. The company has changed the official handle on Facebook to @BattlegroundsMobileIn ahead of the launch. Its developers have been working for the past few months to launch the battle royale in India. The launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile India is currently unknown. However, we can expect it to launch very soon. PUBG Mobile was banned last year in India owing to data security concerns. The developers later announced that they would launch a new India-specific title called PUBG Mobile India. Let’s take a look at more details around the PUBG Mobile India, aka Battlegrounds Mobile India launch.
PUBG Mobile India official handle changed to Battlegrounds Mobile India ahead of the launch
PUBG Mobile developers have been working on relaunching the game in India. The developers have now changed the official name ahead of the India launch.
It looks like the battle royale will launch as Battlegrounds Mobile India in the country. The company has changed the official Facebook account’s handle and YouTube Channel’s name to Battlegrounds Mobile India ahead of the launch. The reason for changing the name could be to leave behind the stained impression of a banned game in India. The developers are yet to announce the official launch date of Battlegrounds Mobile in India.
Krafton, the developers, have recently dropped multiple teasers hinting at the relaunch of PUBG Mobile’s India version. The teaser videos were taken down minutes after going live. Not much was revealed via the deleted videos as they only teased the already-known elements and features of the game.
PUBG’s developers have also been hiring employees in India. According to a recent PUBG Corporation LinkedIn post, the company has listed multiple vacancies for its India game. They also announced the plans to make investments to the tune of USD 100 million in India to “cultivate the local video game, e-sports, entertainment, and IT industries”.
It had also stated that it would maximise data security for its users while adhering to the local regulations. It will include customised in-game content to reflect “local needs”.
