Seems like Pubg never returns to India, after this game got banned for the first time. Which comes under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. As the app is engaged in the prejudicial, defense, and security of the country.
After that Pubg corporation has taken many steps to bring this game back to all countries. Such activities involve revocation of rights from Tencent, which is located in Shenzhen.
India is not only the one that banned this game, while plenty of others are on the list. Those are China, Jordan, Nepal, Iraq, still, many of them are in the queue to stop in near future.
One of the weirdest things is Ban of this game in China, still considering that Tencent is located in China. One of the main reasons behind the ban is Bloodshed in-game.
An alternative for this, Tencent modified this game and launched it as Game of Peace. Where they removed complete blood, instead of characters say Goodbye and fly off.
Reasons behind the PUBG Mobile Ban in India
Addiction is the main reason behind the pub ban. While the game doesn’t care about the user’s health about the ill-effect of screentime and promote violence.
Though all these problems can be fixed if PUBG wants a partnership with India. The company wants to tie up with Reliance and Airtel to bring this back to India. Which will allow partial Indian ownership along with local servers.
Think again, if you are expecting Pubg to return to India. While the ban continues on many popular battle royale games. According to the ministry, they banned over 59 apps which include this game along with TikTok and WeChat.
Earlier in 2020, the government banned over 200 Chinese apps citing “Prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity”. You can notice that Pubg is not banned first, it is on the list. After this incident Korean company Krafton took duties for the game in India from Tencent.
While this company invested $100 million in partnership with Microsoft to run servers in India. All seems to be a waste now. On the other hand, Pubg is hiring in India, which ignites the return plan in mind.
In the meantime, the government states that we have “No Plan To Unban This Game“. Though the authorities and hands are changed still the development is based in China. Some other information states that PUBG doesn’t have a correct team to speak with the government. The Discussion might start in April or March in 2021.
