Internet is flooded with PUBG Mobile India comeback reports. However, there is a huge amount of speculation and it is causing a lot anxiety among fans. There are two sets of views—one that says the famous game can make comeback soon, while other opines that it is difficult road ahead for the makers of PUBG as far as relaunch of the widely popular game in India is concerned.
PUBG has even tried to shed the Chinese connection by breaking away from China-based Tencent Games. In September 2020, PUBG Corporation had said it has made the decision to no longer authorise the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile franchise to China-based Tencent Games in India, opening the possibility of the ban being lifted. However, even this move did not do any good to the South Korean gaming giant.

Meanwhile, as per latest report PUBG Mobile India still has a chance to make a comeback. Krafton, the company behind the PUBG IP, had recently expressed optimism for the launch of the Indian version of PUBG Mobile. Speaking at a fireside chat with Nodwin boss Akshat Rathee at the Indian Gaming Show and Conference 2021, Krafton’s corporate development boss Sean Hyunil Sohn said that the company “will work hard to make it (the launch of PUBG Mobile India) happen.”
"I cannot really tell timing or anything because we don’t know yet,” Sohn was quoted as saying in a report by the South Korean publication E Today. “We care about Indian market greatly. We will work hard to make it happen.”
However, on the other side, in another setback to PUBG game lovers, Indian gamers will not be able to pre-register for PUBG New State, said a report by Sportskeeda,
Krafton is waiting for a go-ahead from the Indian governments to relaunch PUBG mobile but it is not clear as to how long it will take for any confirmation. It is also to be seen whether the Indian government will allow the game to launch at all.
Earlier, a new company called PUBG India Private Limited has been launched by the makers of PUBG mobile after seeking the approval of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs. The company, which is a subsidiary of Krafton Inc and PUBG Corporation, has been registered on the ministry’s website with a valid Corporate Identity Number (CIN).
