Many people have pointed out that the cash prize will mean that no one will have it easy and that it will involve a lot of hard work and dedication from the players.
The big comeback of PUBG
According to a report from Inside Sport, pre-registrations in India for Android and iOS are now open for certain users who are part of the Tap Tap game sharing community. The app has already been registered by over 300,000 users and is currently rated 9.8 / 10. But just like FAU-G, there is no official announcement from the PUBG company and it threw more confusion among the players.
PUBG Mobile India’s Facebook and Instagram pages have posted teasers of the game, claiming it “will be coming soon.” The Tap Tap listing also mentions that the game will be available in English and Hindi. However, the main reason PUBG has yet to make an official announcement is that the Indian government has yet to release its official position on relaunching PUBG Mobile after the decision to “ ban ”.
A report from Inside Sport said that PUBG Corporation was planning to create an Indian subsidiary that would hire more than 100 employees who specialize in business, esports and game development. The move will further erode the Chinese presence after PUBG fires Indian franchisee of PUBG Mobile from Chinese Tencent Games. With the company now looking to actively collaborate and leverage local businesses to strengthen its gaming service, it is only a matter of time before the official government announcement is made.
PUBG Mobile was banned earlier in the year PUBG Mobile after the government said it received numerous complaints from various sources, including several reports of the misuse of certain mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms. to steal and surreptitiously transmit user data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India.
