Battlegrounds Mobile India: Everything about the developers

South Korean gaming company Krafton Inc. has developed Battlegrounds Mobile India. The company came into existence in 2018 and within a few years has established itself as a major player in the gaming industry.

Krafton's success can be largely credited to its PUBG series. The battle royale title is extremely popular among gamers and has been one of the most profitable games ever.

Prior to the establishment of Krafton Inc., PUBG was developed and managed by Bluehole. After PUBG's global success, a Chinese gaming company named Tencent invested in the project. Tencent also acquired gaming studios and aimed to develop PUBG for mobiles.

Since PUBG Mobile is a product developed by a Chinese corporation, the Governement of India banned the battle royale segment in September 2020 due to security concerns. The ban also happened while there were major rifts in diplomatic relations between the two countries.

Bluehole decided to establish Krafton Inc. on November 5th, 2018. Krafton's purpose was to serve as the holding company for Bluehole's properties. Krafton Inc. is hugely successful in South Korea. The company reportedly has a net value of USD 27.2 billion.

The company headquarters are located in Bundang-gu, Seongnam, South Korea. Kim Chang-han is the CEO of Krafton Inc. while Chang Byung-gyu serves as the Chairman.

Krafton Inc. has been successful in maintaining the quality of PUBG across all platforms. The developers have two upcoming projects on hand. One of them is Battlegrounds Mobile India, which is exclusively for the Indian gaming community.

The other one is PUBG New State Mobile that will be launched globally except for India, China, and Vietnam. PUBG Mobile fans expect Battlegrounds Mobile India to be released in June. However, PUBG New State Mobile is expected to be released towards the end of 2021.
