Over the past two months, there has been a lot of talk about the future of PUBG Mobile, one of the most trending esports titles in India. The game was banned by the Government of India, along with 117 other mobile applications, on 2nd September. The announcement was made by the Ministry of Electronics and Information, leaving the gaming community in despair.
Recently, there was also a LinkedIn job posting by PUBG Corporation regarding the recruitment of a Corporate Development Division Manager - India. One of the responsibilities of the role would be to support the setup process of PUBG India with guidance from HQ, dropping a major hint about the game's return to the country.
PUBG Corporation had also decided to cut off ties with Chinese developer Tencent Games for operations in India, closing all Indian servers on 30th October.
