The announcement of the next PUBG Mobile game, PUBG New State brought hope to players from many Asians countries, where the original game is banned. One of the few countries that we are talking about is none other than India, the major contributor to PUBG Mobile downloads and Player count. With PUBG New State being developed by PUBG Studio and not Tencent, players were hoping for an Indian release for the new game, and that brings us to today’s topic – When will PUBG New State Release in India.
PUBG New State is a nuanced version of the original game, that as per settings, takes place in the year 2051 after the events of PUBG Mobile. The game was banned in India because of tension between the Indian and Chinese borders. And, since PUBG Mobile is developed by Tencent, which makes Indian players’ data operated by a China-based company, it was unacceptable to the Indian government, as the user data was in jeopardy. And, that led to the PUBG Mobile ban in India.
Taking a big loss in player count and downloads, PUBG Corporation tried new things to please the Indian government, like tying with Microsoft to process Indian players data within India, changing the developers, and much more. Even after that, PUBG Mobile is still banned in India.
Moving on with the main topic, PUBG New State is set to release later this year globally across Android and iOS platforms. However, three countries have not been included in this so-called “Global Release“. These countries include India, China, and Vietnam. Sounds Familiar? Right?.
