PUBG Mobile India launch date: FINALLY! MeitY has answer for India’s gaming community| check report

PUBG Mobile India Launch Date: In what could provide a much-needed clarity on the launch of PUBG Mobile India to the gaming fraternity of the country, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has responded to RTI queries. It has cleared the air around the much-hyped game.

Replying to these RTI queries, the ministry on Thursday said that it has not granted permission for PUBG Mobile India launch in the country.

In reply to two separate RTI queries, the ministry stated that it did not grant permission for starting any websites/mobile apps/service, reported.

While one RTI was filed by MediaNama recently, another was lodged by GEM Esports. Both RTI applications wanted to know if the Ministry has granted PUBG Mobile India the permission to launch game in India via Google and Apple’s app stores.

The development comes after the Centre banned PUBG and other Chinese games earlier this year, citing threat to national security.

After the clear statement from the Centre came out, now the door for PUBG Mobile India is closed forever from launching the mobile game in the country. However, fans don’t need to be discouraged, there is another indigenous mobile game names FAU-G is being developed and will soon be launched in the country. It is also now clear that PUBG Mobile is not coming back to India before March 2021.

Earlier, it was reported that PUBG Corporation executives are running the government officials for more than a month for a meeting but they are yet to get an appointment from the government side.
