Well, the bad days are gone now, and here comes the good news.

Nonetheless, the game was banned on September 2, 2020, by the Indian Government under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act. The reason behind this step was to reveal the adverse effects of the game on people and how it was a threat to the sovereignty, integrity, and security of India. The game was further removed from the Google PlayStore and Apple’s App to stop the downloading of the game. But finally, PUBG Corporation has revoked its Indian distribution rights and recently announced that the game is ready to make a comeback in India in a completely new avatar.
The new version of the game will be called “PUBG Mobile India” and has a local twist to it which will be similar to the Korean and Chinese versions. The changes are specially made for the Indian audience where the ground setting has been changed and all characters will be fully dressed from the beginning of the game. This time, the blood will be green instead of red and there will also be a few restrictions on the game time so that healthy gameplay habits can be maintained.
As far as the release date speculations are concerned, the game will be made available to the public very soon, however, no official confirmation has been made by the Indian government and as of now, the government remains unfazed on its decision to allow the game to release in India once again.
