On 12 November, PUBG Corporation announced PUBG Mobile's return to India in the form of a new mobile game called PUBG Mobile India. Meanwhile, the company revealed that PUBG Mobile India will come with a few tweaks when compared to the original PUBG Mobile game.

With its South Korean parent company Krafton, Inc., PUBG Corp also plans to make investments worth $100 million in India to cultivate the local video game, esports, entertainment, and IT industries, the company said. The company confirmed via teaser that the first edition of FAU-G will be focused around the Galwan Valley episode.

Another report by Talkesport claims that pre-registration for the new PUBG Mobile India game is now open on the TapTap store for both iOS and Android users. To get the ban lifted, PUBG Corp made the decision to no longer authorise the PUBG Mobile franchise to China-based Tencent Games in India. This was first reported by News18. After releasing multiple teasers, it is now certain that PUBG Mobile will hit the Indian market soon as pre-registration has already begun, although there are questions over the authenticity of the pre-registration page. However, there seems to be no official confirmation yet on the date of launch of the new game.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular battle royale games in the country and that we believe will push the upcoming PUBG Mobile India game a notch higher than any other similar games. The company has set up an official website that says the game will be "coming soon".

PUBG Mobile was banned earlier in the year PUBG Mobile after the government said that it received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users' data in an unauthorised manner to servers which have locations outside India. The government had said that these Chinese apps pose a threat to national security.

This time, PUBG Corp assures that in order to maintain privacy and security of players in India, it will conduct "regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users' personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed".
