While COVID-19 has shown no sign of ending, Indians are looking for how to kill free time due to a lockdown and PUBG Mobile is obviously amongst their top choices.

As a piece of evidence, SimilarWeb figures out that there has been a considerable increase in the number of PUBG Mobile players per month in India. It ranges from 50-80% compared to that in the previous time. That means the downloads of the battle royale game have been even much higher than expected in February and March.

Accordingly, about 19 million Indian players choose PUBG Mobile as the favorite game for over 30 days. This game’s attraction has once again been affirmed in the market.

Back to a few months ago, the Indian government banned its citizens to download and play PUBG Mobile due to fear of a series of consequences caused by game addicts. They included suicides, murders, or acid attacks, as well as many other crazy cases.

However, when the Coronavirus has outbroken and people have to stay at home, playing games may be an evident choice of thousands of people. According to SimilarWeb, it is likely that PUBG Mobile will be more successful with the much more impressive figures if the pandemic couldn’t be terminated in the next few months.

The Coronavirus didn’t only affect citizens’ daily life but it has also made most businesses and individuals ceases their operations. The same thing also happened to the PMPL South Asia Region because matches couldn’t be organized as scheduled.

Along with the lockdown, the PMPL Day 2 was delayed later than initially expected. However, the PUBG Mobile players are now still eager to take part in the next stages of the PMPL South Asia Region.
