PUBG Mobile is undoubtedly among the most popular battle royale titles on the mobile platform and has a well-established esports scene. The game enjoys an extensive player base worldwide that religiously plays the famous BR title.
However, in September, PUBG Mobile fans and players in India faced a setback as the popular esports title was among the 118 Chinese apps banned by the Government of India under section 69A of the Information Technology Act.
Finally, after a long wait of two months, they received the news they were waiting for. A few days back, PUBG Corporation announced a special Indian version of the game.
In the press release, the South Korean company also revealed its plans to boldly invest in hosting an esports league exclusively for the Indian region, one of the country's largest esports events in all aspects, including participating teams, prize money, and competition size.
The new updates indicate that PUBG Mobile may be set to make a comeback in the country very soon.
