PUBG owner Krafton announces collaboration with Microsoft Azure for hosting PUBG Mobile and more
South Korean company Krafton Inc. has announced that they will be collaborating with Microsoft’s cloud computing service, Microsoft Azure. Krafton has made this move to maximize data security and also allow them to host multiple game titles including popular battle royale PUBG (PC, console) and PUBG Mobile as well.
Microsoft Azure hosts some of the biggest multiplayer games and is one of the best platforms that offer cloud computing services, with the highest standards of security.
Return of PUBG Mobile in India?
Dynamic and immersive gameplay complemented by hardcore combat action made PUBG Mobile one of the biggest mobile multiplayer games in India. But due to security reasons, the game was banned in early September by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India.
The game was still playable from third-party websites but recently, Tencent terminated services and access to PUBG Mobile for Indian users. Several reports came up which claimed that big companies like Airtel and Reliance Jio and even Microsoft were trying to acquire the distribution rights of PUBG Mobile in India.
The fact that Krafton Inc. has prioritized user data and safety might hint at PUBG Mobile’s return in the country. As of now, nothing is concrete. Only time will tell if this collaboration marks the revival of PUBG Mobile in India and the return of the game to its former glory.
The huge PUBG Mobile fanbase in India will be eager and hopeful to meet their friends in their favourite battle royale game.
