- PUBG Mobile India posted new teaser videos through its YouTube channel
- The videos were soon made private
- The new teasers hinted the comeback of PUBG Mobile India
PUBG Mobile could be planning to make a comeback in India. The reason behind this is that the official YouTube channel of PUBG Mobile India posted three new videos with “All-New PUBG MOBILE coming to India” and then removed them.
PUBG Mobile was banned last year in India due to data security concerns. Since then, several reports have claimed that the highly popular game could be coming back to the country. The appearance of new videos on the YouTube channel of PUBG Mobile is yet another hint that it may relaunch soon in India.

Some Twitter users were able to view the new teasers that were added on PUBG Mobile India’s YouTube channel before they were made private. It is said that the new teasers lasted for 6 seconds and only highlighted the features of the PUBG Mobile. The new videos also hinted at the comeback of the game in India.
Back in November 2020, PUBG Mobile India released a couple of comeback teasers through its Instagram handle and Facebook account. The same month, its parent firm Krafton confirmed signing a deal with Microsoft Azure cloud services to ensure maximised data security for local storing user information. Reports have claimed that the South Korean company is currently working with new partners to meet the privacy and security requirements of the Indian government.
Another hint that suggests that the launch of PUBG may not be far away in India is that Krafton has been hiring employees in India. Earlier this month, the company listed job vacancies for a product manager, product analyst, senior marketing manager, and video editor through its Linkedin account.
When PUBG was banned in September, the game rights in India belonged to China’s Tencent Holdings. Hence, it was banned along with other Chinese apps. Now that the Chinese firm no longer holds the game rights, Krafton is working with its Indian subsidiary to build a new India-focused version of the game and it will be dubbed as PUBG Mobile India.
The PUBG Mobile India is expected to arrive with several customised features for the Indian audience. Some of the new features that are likely to be available after its comeback include fully clothed characters, green hits instead of red, a virtual simulation training ground, and playtime limitations for ensuring healthy gameplay habits. Currently, India is tackling the new wave of COVID-19 pandemic. Yesterday, Krafton donated $202,00 (~Rs 15,000,000) to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s PM Cares Fund.
