PUBG New State: Hindi Version of Official Website Found Disabled
Hindi Version of PUBG New State's official website was found disabled.

However, upon inspecting the code of the website, it appears that a Hindi version of the website has been disabled. Upon further inspection, a full Hindi language pack containing various aspects of the website, including PUBG New State’s announcement, was discovered.
Reenabling this code makes the Hindi option appear on the website.

Here’s how PUBG New State’s official announcement on the website would have looked, based on the Hindi language pack found on the website.

What does this mean for PUBG New State and India?
The only thing that the presence of a Hindi language pack indicates is that Krafton and PUBG Studio considered releasing PUBG New State in India at some point in time.
It can suggest that there are plans for the game to release in India in the near future. But it can also mean that Krafton decided to scrap the Indian release of the game just before it revealed the game.
PUBG New State was officially announced by PUBG Studio and KRAFTON, Inc on February 27. The new battle royale game is the successor to the extremely popular PUBG Mobile and will be available for Android and iOS users. However, the game will not be launching in India; hence the Google Play Store listing within the country is bereft of any option to pre-register for the game.
