Ever since the government of India banned popular game PUBG, fans in the country have been eagerly waiting for its comeback. Earlier this month, the developer of the popular battle royale game officially confirmed its impending release. Yesterday we also reported that PUBG India could host an esports tournament with a prize pool worth Rs 6 crore.
Now PUBG Mobile has officially registered a separate company under PUBG Corporation in India. This hints that the game is inching closer to release in the country. PUBG Corporation, the company that owns all PUBG titles has been registered with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
PUBG Mobile registered as Indian company
According to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs website, PUBG India Mobile Private Limited has been established as an individual entity based out of Bangalore, Karnataka in India. The move will reportedly fulfil the government norms and pave the way to start PUBG operations in the country. PUBG Mobile India has been registered with an authorized capital of Rs 15 Lakh and paid-up capital of Rs 5 Lakh. The website also revealed Kuma Krishnan Iyer and Sean Sohn as the two directors of the company.
Previously, PUBG had announced an investment of $100 million into a new company that would serve as an Indian subsidiary of PUBG Corporation. The investment is also expected to be used towards boosting the Indian esports industry. The company also partnered with Microsoft to use its Azure cloud service for storing user data to ensure data protection.
Last week, PUBG Mobile confirmed that players will be able to migrate their stats and in-game purchases from the original version of the game. The upcoming game is also expected to introduce India-specific changes.
There is no exact release date for PUBG Mobile India yet but considering that it is a registered company in India now, the battle royale game could launch anytime soon in the country. Yesterday the game’s download link went up on the official site briefly.
