PUBG Mobile, the sleeper hit title that was banned in India two months ago over cybersecurity concerns, is plotting to make a return in the world’s second largest internet market, two sources familiar with the matter told TechCrunch.

The South Korean firm has engaged with global cloud service providers in recent weeks to store Indian users’ data within the country to allay New Delhi’s concerns about user data residency and security, one of the sources said.

The gaming giant has privately informed some high-profile streamers in the country that it expects to resume the service in India before the end of this year, the other source said. Both the sources requested anonymity as they are not authorized to speak to the press. PUBG Corporation did not respond to a request for comment Thursday.

Note that this is by the main PUBG Corporation, which is a Korean company. The previous PUBG MOBILE was published by the Chinese company Tencent Games. But the PC game is developed by PUBG Corporation and remains unaffected. This is an important move that will satisfy millions of PUBG lovers in the country.

The previous version was not developed by Chinese company. It was published by a Chinese company (Tencent) in India. And that's the reason for ban. Now the publishing rights are returned back to the Krafton Inc., the original developer based in South Korea.

As per the reports, Microsoft will publish the game in India & All the players (Indian Users) Global ID's will be moved to the new data servers (That's the reason for shutdown of servers on Oct 30, 2020) based in India (Thus creating a new Geo Restricted Version - PUBG Mobile INDIA) by Dec 2, 2020.
