If the ban of PUBG in India broke your heart into ittu ittu se pieces, then we have scooped out some information that could help mend your shattered heart.
After the ban on PUBG was announced initially, users across the country were still able to play the game. However, a complete shutdown of the server was initiated recently by Tencent which barred users of access to the popular game.
Now, after a week of this announcement, it is being reported that PUBG Mobile could return to India.
While PUBG is yet to confirm the news, a report by Techcrunch, citing its sources, said that PUBG Mobile will be back in the country before the end of the year. As per the report, PUBG is in talks with global cloud service providers to store Indian users’ data in India only.
This way, the company would align with the policies on data regulation set by the Indian government and thus the game could make a comeback. For the unaware, before its ban, China-based Tencent Games used to store PUBG users data.
While banning PUBG in India, the government has accused the company of data privacy and security. The ban stated that the app is engaged in activities “that are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity, defence and security of the country.”
So now, if the data stays within the borders of the country, there shouldn’t be a problem. Also, the report goes on to add that PUBG Corp has privately informed some streamers in India that its service could “resume in India before the end of this year.”
