PUBG Mobile India Launch Teaser Briefly Appears on YouTube
The teaser did not reveal much about the game launch date but reiterated that the game is ‘coming soon’.
PUBG Mobile official YouTube channel on Friday, 30 April uploaded a teaser video with the caption: 'All new PUBG Mobile coming to India.'
This video has been taken down by the company, as of now. However, some fans managed to see what the six-second video offered.
Although the teaser did not reveal much about the PUBG Mobile India launch date but reiterated that the game is 'coming soon'.
Ever since PUBG mobile was banned by the Indian government in September last year, citing that the game was a threat to the “sovereignty, integrity, defense, and security of the country”, there has been several attempts by Krafton to bring the battleroyale game back in the country.
Earlier in March, a report by Sportskeeda suggested that PUBG’s parent company Krafton is working hard to release PUBG mobile in India.
Sean Hyunil Sohn, Head of Corporate Development at Krafton told Sportskeeda, “I cannot tell the timing or anything because we don't know yet. But what I can tell you is, we care about the Indian market greatly and also that's how I get to know you and get to know friends in the Indian gaming industry now. So definitely, we will work hard to make it happen”.
Meanwhile, PUBG Corporation has recently posted a new job listing on networking platform LinkedIn seeking an ‘Investment and Strategy Analyst’ for its Bengaluru office. While this job posting does not confirm whether the game is returning to India, it does hint at PUBG’s plan to expand in the country.
