One of the most expected news of the year for all the gamers in India is when will PUBG make its return to the country. On September 2, 2020, the most popular game with the most download counts was banned in India over security concerns. According to the government, several Chinese apps, including Tik Tok, We Chat, Shein, and others, were engaged in such activities that were prejudicial to the country’s sovereignty.
According to the recent rumors, the mobile version of PUBG will not re-enter India anytime sooner since there is no response from the Indian government regarding the company’s request. PUBG promoters have requested The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) for a meeting in order to discuss the relaunch of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite in India. However, the ministry officials have paid no heed to the proposal, even though the other side is desperate to relaunch India’s game. Judging from the current situation, it is unlikely for the game to return to India this year. At the very least, we can expect it to arrive in February or March next year.
Any update about PUBG launch?

If you are not aware that PUBG Mobile is so desperate to launch themselves in India, you are at the right place. The game is not available to download either on the Play Store or on App Store. The game earns a huge profit from thousands of players in India. Because of the ban issued by the Indian Government, Tencent faced a drop in 2% of the shares, accounting for a loss of around 13 to 14 billion US dollars, which is a considerable sum of money.
If you are still wondering why PUBG PC and PUBG Console are still available for download, we would like to inform you that these are developed by PUBG Corporation, which is owned by a video game company named BlueHole, the headquarter of which is located in South Korea, and not in China. Therefore, you can still play the game on a compatible PC or gaming consoles, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox in India. On the other hand, PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite are partially owned by Tencent Games, a Chinese company, even though the servers of Bluehole are based in South Korea.
There are some other differences between the two versions as well, including the graphics of the two. The mobile version is of relatively lower resolution and is compatible with almost all the smartphones of different brands in the world. On the other hand, the PC version’s graphics resolution is a lot smoother, giving us an HD gaming experience. Even though we can alter the mobile version’s graphics settings to some better quality, it will still fall short of the quality of the PC version.
