According to a Facebook page, PUBG Mobile India may be renamed ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India.’
According to the company’s official Facebook page, YouTube channel, and India website, PUBG Mobile India can soon relaunch as Battlegrounds Mobile India. Fans have been waiting for a relaunch since the battle royale game was banned in India in September of last year, and publisher Krafton has been trying to get it back. Now, some updates have been noticed on the company’s social media site, so there might be some movement on that front. There was also an alleged promotional trailer for the Indian version of PUBG Mobile that was removed shortly after it was uploaded.
In September of last year, PUBG Mobile was blocked in India, along with 117 other smartphones. The game had a large fan base since its release in 2018, and players were disappointed to learn of the ban. Since then, efforts have been made to get the game back with certain modifications to appeal to an Indian audience, but no definitive result has been reached. With that said, “@BattlegroundsMobileIN” appears on PUBG Mobile India’s official Facebook page, implying that the game can relaunch as Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Some PUBG Mobile India YouTube subscribers were notified late last month (1, 2) that a new 6-second teaser video had been posted to the official site, but it was soon deleted. The title was allegedly “All New PUBG MOBILE coming to India #1.”
It’s worth noting that neither PUBG Corporation nor Krafton have given any information about the launch of PUBG Mobile in India. The game’s destiny is still unknown, but recent updates suggest that PUBG Mobile fans will have plenty to look forward to.
