It has been nearly two months since the ban on PUBG Mobile and 117 other Chinese apps. The hope is still alive with fans of the game as the devs drop numerous hints about the possibilities. A few days ago, PUBG Corporation posted a recruitment notice on its official LinkedIn profile for the vacancy of a Corporate Development Division Manager for the Indian region.

PUBG Mobile was banned earlier due to data insecurity

From that, we can assume that PUBG Corp. is setting up a base in India, which may lead to the return of PUBG Mobile to the market.

PUBG Mobile Banned after Escalating India-China Tensions

On 2nd September, the Indian IT ministry introduced a ban on 118 Chinese apps, including the popular battle royale title. As expected, PUBG Mobile's possible relaunch became the center of the discussion, after all, India accounts for over 24% of the total worldwide PUBG Mobile players. The longer the game is out of the country, the riskier since gamers and the publisher could lose out, money-wise and time-wise.

Post-ban, PUBG Mobile's revenue dropped dramatically, from $221 million in August to $198 million in September. These figures caused PUBG Mobile to stand only second in the list of September's highest-earning games worldwide.

PUBG Corporation has gone above and beyond trying to bring back the game. They even revoked the publishing rights of the Chinese giants Tencent. All with the hope that the Indian Government would welcome PUBG Mobile back to the country.

In response to the ban, PUBG Corp said:

"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."

PUBG Mobile may return to India soon

So, if the claims are correct, PUBG Corporation may be setting up its first base in India. That could be a major stepping stone to bring back the world-famous Battle Royale title to the country. PUBG Corporation should be able to satisfy the Government's laws of data security.
