Will Battlegrounds Mobile India be banned?

    The majority of Krafton Inc.'s India employees are Tencent employees, according to the letter, and Battlegrounds Mobile India's Play Store listing uses the word PUBG Mobile.


Last September, PUBG Mobile was declared illegal in India under section 69A of the Information Technology Act. Krafton Inc has been working hard to relaunch the game in India since then. To give you a quick recap, the company broke ties with Tencent Games for the game's Indian distribution, but the game did not relaunch at the time.


The company then announced that it was working on a special fork of the game for the region, dubbed PUBG Mobile India, but it was never published. PUBG Mobile India has now been renamed Battlegrounds Mobile India, and pre-registrations for the game are now being accepted.

Ninong Ering, a former Union Minister and current Arunachal Pradesh MLA, has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to impose a ban on the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India, which he refers to as the relaunch of PUBG Mobile, according to IGN India.


Why is Ering calling for the banning of Battlegrounds Mobile India?

Ering claimed in his letter that the majority of Krafton Inc.'s India employees are Tencent employees. He also claims that the word PUBG Mobile appears in the Battlegrounds Mobile India Google Play Store listing. The letter also claims that Krafton Inc's $22.4 million investment in Nodwin Gaming is a security risk.


Tencent Games, according to current Member of Parliament Abhishek Singhvi, is looking to re-enter the Indian market with Battlegrounds Mobile India.


The government has yet to make a statement on the subject. Krafton Inc has also avoided using the word PUBG Mobile and has yet to reveal a release date for the app.
