PUBG Mobile replacement Battlegrounds Mobile India could launch later this month, but a statement from Krafton’s CEO has made fans sit up. Read on to know why.
Battlegrounds Mobile India has collected over 20 million pre-registrations so far.
Last year, many Indian gamers were dismayed when popular battle royale shooter PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (or PUBG Mobile) was banned by the Central Government in September citing security concerns. However, even as Krafton prepares to launch its replacement game called Battlegrounds Mobile India, a new report suggests that an executive may have revealed that it might be the same game as PUBG Mobile.
A report by IGN suggests that a statement to the media by the South Korean publisher Krafton’s CEO CH Kim might point to the fact that Battlegrounds Mobile India is actually PUBG Mobile. After the company opened up pre-registrations for the game last month, the game recently crossed 20 million registrations, which is quite a large number considering the iOS version is yet to be announced.
