The developer of ‘PUBG’ Krafton is ready to publish a separate version of ‘PUBG’ for india with a new avatar and a new name : Battleground Mobile India(BGMI) .

However, Krafton’s hope to make a comeback may get crushed,as former Union Minister and current Arunachal Pradesh MLA Ninong Ering wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi , requesting a ban on Battlegrounds Mobile India on Saturday(May 22) . He said that this is just an Illusion to bring PUBG Mobile back to India. In his letter, he clearly specified that the upcoming game is “the relaunch of PUBG Mobile”.

He alleged that Krafton holds 15% of Tencent’s shares, which is a Chinese technology firm that was the leading investor of PUBG Mobile India version. Moreover, he pointed out that the terms and conditions of the Google Play Store listing of Battlegrounds Mobile India mention the term ‘PUBG Mobile’. He also claimed that Battlegrounds Mobile India’s release allows Tencent’s re-entry into the Indian gaming market , per report by IGN India .

Although the Krafton company has stated many times that the data of the users of India will be secured through Microsoft Azure and this data will be stored in the servers of India and Singapore , If Prime Minister Modi or any of the two ministers – the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and Ministry of Electronics and IT – pay attention to the request of the politicians then Battlegrounds India could find itself fishing in troubled waters. 

As of now, Battleground Mobile India is yet to announce the launch date of the game. Krafton has only opened the pre-registration link for the gamers on May 18 . Many gamers in the country are hoping that the company may launch the game in June 2021.
