- PUBG Mobile India has been officially renamed ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India’ as the official website has gone.
- The official website says that Battlegrounds Mobile India is “coming soon.”
- The game could be modified specifically for the Indian market.
PUBG Corporation had announced last November that it will bring back PUBG Mobile to India. However, it had not revealed a timeline for the launch of the game in the country. Last month, the official YouTube channel for PUBG Mobile India uploaded a video suggesting that the launch of the game is imminent in the Indian market. Moreover, a creative banner of PUBG was leaked last week suggesting that it will be renamed Battlegrounds Mobile in India. However, there was no confirmation. That changes today as the official website for Battlegrounds Mobile India has gone live.
PUBG Mobile will launch as Battlegrounds Mobile India
Today, the official website for Battlegrounds Mobile India went live, which not only confirms that the PUBG Mobile will be coming back in India but also that it will be renamed for the Indian market. The official website has says “Coming Soon” suggesting the game could launch in Indian anytime soon. The webpage links to the official YouTube channel for Battlegrounds Mobile India but it has no videos at the moment. It is also worth mentioning that there is no mention of PUBG anywhere on the website. We can see “Krafton” written there, which, as you might know, is the company behind PUBG.
There is still no information regarding the Battlegrounds Mobile India launch date. What we also don’t know for sure at the moment is if Battlegrounds Mobile India will just be a rebranded version of PUBG Mobile or if it will be modified specifically for the Indian market. In a press release that came out in November, PUBG Corporation had said that PUBG Mobile will be modified for India “to build and foster a healthy gameplay environment, in-game content will be improved and tailored to reflect local needs.” Hopefully, we’ll know more soon as the launch nears.
