PUBG Mobile in India
PUBG Mobile still remains banned in India. Players were hyped after Youtuber GodNixon Gaming stated that the Indian government has given a green signal for the comeback of PUBG Mobile, but the claim was not official. A representative from Krafton said that the information is not official according to his understanding. As of now, nothing can be said regarding PUBG Mobile's unban in the country.
