Indian PUBG Mobile fans have been happy with the game announcing its return to the country in the form of ‘PUBG Mobile India’. However, a Times of India report that claimed that the game’s release would face a few hurdles from the Indian government certainly dampened the mood.
But the release of a teaser of an advertisement featuring popular PUBG Mobile players like Dynamo, Kronten, and Jonathan raised up our hopes once again. These clips also featured a ‘Coming Soon’ message, raising expectations about the game’s release.
Kronten claims that PUBG Mobile India will release by November 20
On his stream yesterday, Kronten said:
“The teaser was released today, the trailer will come out by tomorrow. In that trailer, PUBG Mobile India’s release date will be clearly mentioned. The game is likely to appear on the Play Store and App Store by November 20. If the trailer releases tomorrow, it would be up for three or four days to create hype. So, the game will likely release on 18th, 19th, or 20th November.”

Kronten was one of the players who were featured in the PUBG Mobile India advertisement teasers.
At the time of writing, the trailer of PUBG Mobile India is yet to be released. So take this information from Kronten with a pinch of salt.
Earlier this week, PUBG Mobile is returning to India with a special version of the game devised for Indian users. The new version of the game claims to have addressed the privacy concerns which were cited as the reason behind the ban. A $100 Million USD investment was also announced by the company.
Following this, Pre-registrations for an unverified version of the game became on the TapTap store. TapTap is an alternative to the Google Play Store for Android devices. Additionally, PUBG Mobile also launched a new official website that features a ‘Coming Soon’ message.
So everything is lining up for the game to release shortly. It will be interesting to see if Kronten’s prediction about the release date comes true.
