PUBG Corporation recently announced the launch of the India-specific PUBG MOBILE INDIA game. While this is good news for the fans of battle royale game in the country, there was some concern about the old data of players. Now, according to an Instagram user, PUBG Mobile India will allow migration of old data including skins and other purchases.

As mentioned above, PUBG Mobile India users will be able to migrate their old data including purchased skins and other in-app purchases to the India-specific version. This comes as good news for PUBG Mobile fans, who have spent a lot of money in the game before it got banned in the country. While there is no official announcement from the developer regarding this, it’s expected that the company will have this feature to attract old players and gain further loyalty.
Notably, the parent company of PUBG Corp, Krafton recently announced a global partnership with Microsoft. The deal with Microsoft entails hosting of all games developed by Krafton or its subsidiaries, including PUBG Mobile on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform. Microsoft has three Azure data centers located in India and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the user data is migrated to local servers.
As of now, there’s no word on when PUBG Mobile India will officially roll out in the country. However, the developer has already confirmed fully clothed characters, virtual training ground, green hit effects and time restrictions as India-specific modifications for the new game.
