According to a report by South Korean publication The Guru, Krafton is not planning to release its new mobile battle royale game PUBG: New State in India. In a statement to the publication, Krafton stated that (translated) “It is true that India is excluded from pre-registration of the New State. We are not currently planning to launch the New State in India.” The company says that they will first focus on re-releasing the Indian version of the Battleground mobile game.
Krafton announced PUBG: New State on 25 February and from that time the game also became available for pre-registration on Google Play. However, developers have excluded India as well as China and Vietnam from pre-registration.
Now that the game has been developed by PUBG Studio and Krafton is its publisher, the fans hope that the government will not have any objections on its arrival in India. However, the decision to not release the new version of the game publisher in India on the one hand and the inclusion of PUBG Mobile in violent and addicted games by Union Minister Javadekar on the other hand, is definitely a shock for the fans.
