As noted by Tencent on October 29 in a Facebook post as well as a forum announcement, the company is ceasing operations of PUBG Mobile India servers and associated services.

What this means in normal words is that Tencent was running game servers for Indian users. While the PUBG Mobile app had been removed from the Google Play Store and the iPhone App Store, people who had the PUBG Mobile installed on their phones could still play the game if they could get past ISP restrictions. So, some people were side-loading the game updates on their phones, or even using the PUBG Mobile APK to install the game on Android phones. Then, depending on ISP blocking they were either using a proxy or VPN to get past it, or in some cases there was no ISP ban on connecting to PUBG servers from India.

What has happened now is that these servers are no longer going to be available to PUBG Mobile players from India. Tencent on October 29 announced that it is switching off these India-specific PUBG servers.

But, it was an exciting and emotional moment for Indian PUBG players when they spotted the APK and Google PlaySTore download links on PUBG Mobile India's official website on Friday. The links did not work. They, however, raise a lot of speculation that developers were giving final touch-ups to the website. There has been no official word from PUBG Corporation on the date of the official launch of PUBG Mobile India yet. However, it is speculated a lot of things will become clear on the official Facebook page of the site when they are reportedly expected to conduct a press conference on November 24. So far, a lot of developments have been brought by the company to only strengthen the speculations of the launch that may happen soon.

It is no secret that PUBG Mobile is coming back to India. Over the last few weeks, we've heard a lot of chatter about the game returning to India with fully clothed avatars and no bloodshed.

Set to be launched under a new name, PUBG Mobile India, this new variant for the game will be tailored for Indian audiences, their parents, and mostly the government which had in the past raised serious concerns about the game's ability to keep user data safe within the bounds of our country.

However, what's more, interesting is that despite PUBG Mobile India being a new game with servers based in the country, the game will be able to recognise and allow the use of the old IDs of users. This is according to reports which claim the company plans to let players use their current IDs that they are using to access PUBG Global so far.

On Saturday, the official website of the new PUBG India mobile game added download links which gave hope to the users of the launch being earlier than expected. The website showed two download options, the first led to an APK download link and the second led to the Google Play store. However, none of the links worked. The small tease by the developers has got the PUBG fans excited, and they have decided to express their emotions through memes.

PUBG Mobile 1.1 Version Update: More New Changes and How to Download

-- Pre-registration for PUBG Mobile India is already going on for select Android and iOS users on the Tap game sharing community. The listing says that the game will be available in English as well as in Hindi. PUBG Mobile India pre-registrations have started and some teasers have been released.

-- PUBG Mobile India will be in line with Indian sensibilities. The avatars will be fully clothed and a green liquid will replace the blood that will be shown when an enemy is shot dead. Moreover, a time-limit will be set on the game to counter the addictive nature of the game.

-- Reports have also noted that the new game, that is PUBG Mobile India will be able to recognise and allow the use of the old IDs of users who played PUBG Global. This would be convenient for the users as they can get some sort of continuity in the game. This will also mean that in-game purchases made in the global version will also be carried forward to the Indian version.

-- On Friday, the APK download link of PUBG Mobile India briefly appeared for some users for a few hours on the site. The website showed two download options, out of which the first one led to an APK download link and the second led to the Google Play store. The former link led to a predated announcement while the latter redirected users to PUBG Mobile India’s Facebook page, as per reports. This, however, raised speculation that the official site is testing the bandwidth before the official launch of PUBG Mobile India.

-- PUBG Mobile India has made changes in hopes to make it a win-win situation. Firstly, Krafton, PUBG’s parent company, which severed ties with Tencent, will store the data of Indian users locally. Krafton signed a deal with Microsoft to store the user data on Azure Cloud servers, some of which are installed in India. This would mean that the data of Indian users will be stored on these servers, which is in line with the government’s data localisation policy. As per reports, some users noted that the developers were transferring data from PUBG Mobile to PUBG Mobile India servers as the users were greeted with an “account data migration” message.
