Indian gamers have been waiting for the launch of PUBG Mobile India for many months now. While that has unfortunately not climaxed into anything, Krafton, the company behind PUBG, recently announced a brand new mobile title called PUBG: New State, sending these anticipating players into another frenzy. But it looks like that the future for both the games in India looks uncertain for now.
PUBG: New State, the futuristic-looking game that’s set to expand the PUBG universe, is already up for pre-registration on Google Play Store and the App Store in many markets outside India. In our country, however, the game is a no-show, and it looks like it will remain that way for now. In an interview with Sportskeeda, a Krafton representative confirmed that it has decided not to include pre-registration for PUBG: New State in India.
“With Krafton doing everything it can to prepare for the launch of a new PUBG app specifically developed and serviced for India, it has decided not to include pre-registration for PUBG: New State in India,” the representative said. This clearly indicates that the company is more focused on bringing PUBG Mobile back to India. Krafton is also said to be in talks with the government for the same.
Another statement from Krafton says that the publisher is waiting for the government’s decision to plan their next move in India. “We are awaiting the Indian government’s consideration and decision on our next plan with PUBG in the region.”
This pretty much confirms that PUBG: New State is not going to be available in the country anytime soon. But at the same time, it gives us hopes about playing PUBG Mobile in India again as the developers and publishers are working towards re-launching it in the country.
