PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular mobile games ever in India. PUBG Mobile helped India step up into the eSports scene as well. Unfortunately in September, The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India banned PUBG mobile. The game was removed from all stores due to security and privacy concerns regarding the player data. Since then players in India have been craving for the same battle royale action. Soon after PUBG Corporation announced PUBG mobile India, a version of the game tailor made for the Indian audience. In this article we will see what impact PUBG Mobile India will have.

Impact of PUBG Mobile India
PUBG Mobile’s ban definitely sent players to other battle royale games looking for the same action. We can see that Free Fire, another popular game in the same genre was the most downloaded game this year. There is no denying that the lack of PUBG might have contributed to this increase in popularity. People have also been playing Call of Duty Mobile, though that game has its own dedicated fan base.

On release, PUBG Mobile India will definitely get a lot of attention in a very short time. It will most likely regain it’s old status and draw in new fans as well. All things considered, other games really will have to step up their game in order to stay relevant and compete with PUBG’s return to India.
