PUBG Mobile was yanked from the Google Play Store in India last year as a result of corporate and geopolitical wranglings between India and China.
Incredibly, it still hasn’t returned, despite India being PUBG Mobile’s biggest market before the ban.
Indian mobile gaming blog Gaming on Phone has marshalled the evidence for a forthcoming PUBG Mobile India from Gemwire, Crafton, and PUBG Corp. And here it is.
- A new poster for the game (pictured) has been spotted in the sourcecode for the PUBG Mobile India website.
- There’s a PUBG Mobile India website, up since late last year.
- Crafton recently posted job listings on LinkedIn relating to PUBG Mobile India, and stated in an interview that it was prioritizing a forthcoming PUBG Mobile relaunch over PUBG: New State.
- Some PUBG Mobile India teaser videos went live on the game’s YouTube channel the other day, before disappearing again.
As evidence goes, that all sounds pretty conclusive. There are no dates yet, but we’d speculate that PUBG Mobile India will be along in the relatively near future.
