What Do We Know So Far About PUBG India?
Earlier on November 12, PUBG Corp revealed that it is making a comeback to the Indian market with the creation of a new game which will basically be the Indian subsidiary of its widely popular gaming app.
It further announced that it plans to make investments worth $100 million in India to develop the local video game, esports, entertainment, and IT industries with the help of its South Korean parent company Krafton, Inc.
The viral gaming app PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) was among the 118 Chinese apps that were banned by the Indian government in September over national security concerns amid the border tensions with China.
Previously, there had also been concerns about the game being too addictive and hence adversely affecting the lives of teenagers who go on playing it for say 8 hours straight. So, to build a healthy gameplay environment, the game content will be tailored to suit local needs. There will be a feature to put up restrictions on game time to promote healthy gameplay habits for younger players.
Now as the company is set to officially come back for its massive Indian userbase, the announcement of its release date and more details about the ‘India-specific’ game are being highly awaited.
