PUBG Mobile is reportedly talking to telecom major Bharti Airtel to bring the popular multiplayer game back on the mobile screens of its Indian fans.
PUBG Corporation, the parent company of PUBG Mobile, has started initial conversation with Airtel for handing over distribution rights for the Indian market. "The gaming platform is also busy in raising a lean team in India. It has been interviewing candidates with experience of under 4 to 6 years," the publication reported.
If the deal comes through, it will help PUBG get hold of one of its largest markets, and facilitate Airtel's entry into the online gaming market in India.
The ban imposed by the Indian government has badly impacted PUBG Mobile's global growth. According to Sensor Tower, the global downloads of PUBG Mobile fell by over 26% in September, owing to ban of PUBG in India. Once the top contributor to app charts, PUBG Mobile has slipped lower in the position ladder.
