Renamed as Battlegrounds Mobile, PUBG Mobile get ready to return to Indian territory. The game was banned in India in 2020 and this resulted in a huge growth of several competitors there (such as Free Fire). India is one of the main markets for PUBG Mobile and where its biggest audience comes from, after China.
Krafton will begin pre-registration for this game on May 18th.
Why is this announcement important for us Spaniards? Anyone who plays PUBG Mobile must have noticed an exponential increase in Indian players on Spanish servers.
Battlegrounds Mobile will essentially be the same as PUBG Mobile, but licensed and published by Krafton and without any influence from Tencent Games. That's what most of the media says, but this new game could very well be PUBG New State, the new PUBG game designed by Krafton to be 100% uninfluenced by Chinese studios.

All we know is that the Battle Royales competition is still going strong in 2021 and with no signs of showing fatigue.
