Ever since PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year, smartphone gamers have been waiting for the game to make a comeback. But even after months of trailers, reports, and more, we still have to get our hands on the game. Fortunately, Krafton recently formally announced the relaunch of the game in India with a new title: Battlegrounds Mobile India.
Now, according to a new report From IGN India, Krafton is asking content creators to avoid using the name ‘PUBG Mobile India’ to refer to Battlegrounds Mobile India, because Krafton fears that the Indian government may ban the game if it looks like PUBG Mobile India.
The IGN India report mentions that Krafton sent the creators a WhatsApp message asking them to avoid using the game’s previous name in their videos. The message reportedly reads “We also suggest that you no longer use PUBGM in your content as it was banned and we don’t want it to be banned again. We recommend using worlds like Battlegrounds Mobile India, Korean game, Indian version in its content. “
For those who don’t know, Krafton formally announced Battlegrounds Mobile India a few days ago, with a new poster for the game. However, even as players across the country prepare to return to the battlefield, there is no word from Krafton on an actual release date. However, the company has mentioned that the game will see a pre-registration window before launch. Hopefully we will be able to return to Battlegrounds Mobile India soon, with some reports pointing to a launch in the third week of June.
