PUBG Corporation announces Indian market-centric PUBG Mobile India | privacy & security top priority
PUBG Corporation, the creator of PLAYER UNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) and a subsidiary of South Korea’s KRAFTON, Incorporated, on Thursday announced that it will launch an Indian market-centric game named PUBG Mobile India. According to the Korean tech giant, privacy and security of the data of Indian players are a top priority for PUBG Corporation, and it would conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personally identifiable information to reinforce security and ensure that their data is safely managed. This development comes almost two weeks after the game had stopped working for players in the South-Asian country. The Indian government had slapped a ban on PUBG Mobile among 117 other Chinese apps in September, amid the ongoing border tensions between India and China at Line of Actual Control (LAC). PUBG Corporation has also revealed that it plans to invest USD 100 million that will contribute to the Indian gaming, e-sports, entertainment, and IT industries. This news will come as a relief for Indian gamers who were heavily feeling the void created by the ban of PUBG Mobile in India. However, it is still to be seen that when will the launch of the actual game takes place as the company hasn't shared a specific timeline.
