PUBG Corporation has announced that it is preparing to launch PUBG Mobile India, a new game specially made for the Indian market, reported the Indian Express. PUBG Mobile was banned earlier this year in India by the government.
Alongside the announcement, the company has revealed its plans on how it will provide a secure and healthy gameplay environment for players, and how it will invest in the country to cultivate local video game, esports, entertainment, and IT industries, reported the newspaper.
The company is yet to announce the release date of PUBG Mobile India. PUBG has stated that it plans to create an Indian subsidiary, which will help in communication with players and provide them with localised services. It intends to hire over 100 employees that will specialise in business, esports, and game development.
It will also work with local businesses to strengthen its gaming service. For this, Krafton Inc plans to invest around $100 million in the country. It will also be hosting India-exclusive esports events featuring big prize pools, big tournaments and big productions.
PUBG Mobile India will have privacy and security of Indian players data as its top priority, according to the company. It will conduct regular audits and verifications on the storage systems holding Indian users personally identifiable information to reinforce security.
