Love PUBG? Here is some good news for you. PUBG might soon be available for download yet again on the Play Store and App Store in India as developments confirm that PUBG Corporation has pulled back its association from Tencent for operations in India.
Putting in simple words, PUBG Corporation, which hails from South Korea, is the original maker of PUBG Mobile. And Tencent, which is a Chinese Firm, shares publishing responsibilities with the game in India. PUBG Corp has recently released a statement that PUBG Mobile will no longer be controlled by Tencent Games in India and that PUBG Corp will take all publishing responsibilities.
So there are chances that PUBG might soon be unbanned in India and now you all can cheer up just like twitter is.
Here’s what PUBG Corp said in its statement:
“PUBG Corporation fully understands and respects the measures taken by the government as the privacy and security of player data is a top priority for the company. It hopes to work hand-in-hand with the Indian government to find a solution that will allow gamers to once again drop into the battlegrounds while being fully compliant with Indian laws and regulations.
In light of recent developments, PUBG Corporation has made the decision to no longer authorize the PUBG Mobile franchise to Tencent Games in India. Moving forward, PUBG Corporation will take on all publishing responsibilities within the country. As the company explores ways to provide its own PUBG experience for India in the near future, it is committed to doing so by sustaining a localized and healthy gameplay environment for its fans.
PUBG Mobile is the mobile version of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), an intellectual property owned and developed by PUBG Corporation, a South Korean gaming company. The company is actively engaged in developing and publishing PUBG on multiple platforms, including PUBG Mobile in select territories, to provide the best player experiences possible.”
Reportedly, Tencent has lost over $34 billion in terms of market value ever since the ban was announced in India.
