PUBG Corporation, creator of PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS (PUBG) and a subsidiary of South Korea’s KRAFTON Inc., has announced that it is preparing to launch PUBG MOBILE INDIA, a new game created specifically for the Indian market. The company also revealed plans to provide a secure and healthy gameplay environment alongside investments to cultivate local video game, esports, entertainment, and IT industries.
PUBG was banned in India on September this year after the government deemed the game to be a threat to national security.
In a statement, the company said, with privacy and security of Indian player data being a top priority, the company will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users’ personal information to reinforce security and ensure their data is safe.
PUBG Corporation also announced plans to create an Indian subsidiary to enhance communications and services with players. The Indian company will hire over 100 employees specialising in business, esports, and game development. In addition to establishing a local office, the company will look to actively collaborate and leverage local businesses to strengthen its gaming service.
