PUBG Mobile has been nothing short of a phenomenon, and in the Indian market, it has racked up a massive number in all aspects. The game has become a household name in the country.
At this point, every PUBG Mobile fan in India, in all likelihood, is aware of the announcement made in mid-November about the Indian version of the game. This brought in glimmers of hope as the trailer and website were released, but it was only transitory, and there have been no further official revelations since then.
There have been numerous developments in the battle royale title in the country from various sources, including replies to numerous RTIs. A recent statement by KRAFTON's chairman was misinterpreted, and the South Korean organization has issued a clarification about it.
