    Furthermore, PUBG Corporation is planning to establish a local office. This office will hire over a 100 employees for enhancing communications and services with Indian players. The developers added, “In addition to establishing a local office, the company will look to actively collaborate and leverage local businesses to strengthen its gaming service.”

    To add to all of that, PUBG Corporation and parent company Krafton are planning to make a $100 million investment in India. This is around Rs. 746 crores and will “cultivate the local video game, e-sports, entertainment, and IT industries.” However, the PUBG Mobile India release date is under wraps for now.

    Indian fans were disappointed with the ban of their favorite game, big time. The game was a means of both escape and livelihood for many. From casual gamers who played it to have fun to streamers who made a career out of it, PUBG was a big thing in the country. Besides, India also had the highest number of downloads in the entire world for PUBG Mobile.

    Furthermore, YouTubers and streamers who were heavily dependent on the game started talking about it. On one hand, they lost their favorite game. On the other hand, revenue and views numbers dropped big time. However, after millions of players moved on to Call Of Duty: Mobile, things definitely got better. Some streamers also saw an increase in their viewership because of this. For the most part, it is because of the break from monotony that the ban provided.

    Looks like PUBG fans will be getting back their favorite battle royale game. This is great news for all sorts of players out there from professional esports players, streamers and YouTubers to casual players. Hopefully, the official release date of the game is revealed soon.
