As millions of PUBG Mobile fans eagerly waiting to re-enter the game in India, there are strong rumors that PUBG Mobile India will be returning to the country in the coming days. According to some media reports, PUBG could relaunch between the second and third week of January.
However, another media report said there didn't appear to be a prospect on the horizon for the game to launch in the country before March.
The company launched two big announcements in December 2020, which helped raise the hopes of PUBG India fans. Parent company Krafton Inc has also recently appointed Anish Aravind as the new Country Manager for India. According to a report, Krafton Inc recruited more people by adding four more people to the team. In particular, these four people were part of Tencent, the company responsible for the global launch rights of PUBG Mobile.
Meanwhile, FAU-G (Fearless and United Guards) which was scheduled to be released in December 2020, will now launch in India on January 26. Bollywood Akshay Kumar shared FAU-G Anthem with a pre-registration link.
FAU-G is reportedly based on the Jalwan Valley confrontation that occurred in 2020 between the armies of India and China near the Royal Line of Control in East Ladakh.
FAU-G was created by NCore Games and is also associated with Akshay's other initiative, Bharat Ke Veer, which is a fundraising campaign for the families of martyred soldiers.
On September 2, 2020, the central government banned 118 other Chinese mobile apps, including Player Unknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG). A statement issued by the Ministry of Electronics, Information and Technology said: "The applications have been banned because they are involved in activities that affect the sovereignty and integrity of India, the defense of India, state security and public order." The statement added:
"This step will protect Crore's interests of Indian mobile phone and internet users. This decision is a specific step to ensure the security and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace."
