In early September, PUBG Mobile fans in India were struck by an avalanche of bad news after the MeitY imposed a ban on 118 applications, including PUBG Mobile and its streamlined variant, PUBG Mobile Lite. Over time, fans and players have been longing for the return of the battle royale title.
In November, the announcement of the region-specific Indian version brought back the hopes of several players in the country. Post that, many teasers featuring Dynamo, Jonathan, and Kronten were released on the official social media handles of PUBG Mobile India. Also, a new website was set up.
But these hopes have been diminished by the fact that it has been more than 145 days since the official announcement. And players now wonder if PUBG Mobile will return to India.
