Despite being a popular game in India, the PUBG Mobile ban in India does not have a great effect on the total revenue of the game. It can be explained as India players do not spend as much money on mobile games as in some other market. In fact, the gaming industry in India has just blossomed recently and players prefer playing for free rather than spending money on it.

For the unversed, after being banned in India for more than 3 years due to the cybersecurity problems, PUBG Mobile is going to come back to the country with a localized version called PUBG Mobile India. While PUBG Corp issued an official announcement and teaser for the return of the game, the exact release date is yet to be revealed!
