PUBG Mobile was banned by the Government of India in late June in view of the risk associated with cyber security. Since then, users in India cannot download this game from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. However, after several months, the Battle Royal Game is preparing to return to India. This is revealed in the report of TechCrunch.
In the latest report, TechCrunch has quoted two sources as saying that PUBG Corp has spoken to the Global Cloud Service Provider in the last few weeks and asked the Indian users to store the data in the country itself. This means that PUBG Corp wants to end the central government’s concern about national security by storing users’ data in India. It is possible that the government ban on the game can be lifted on the condition of storing data in India.
