Multiple attempts with Indian network carriers to make the game available once again on Indian grounds.

PUBG Mobile: After Jio Now In Talks With Airtel To Revive The Game In India

PUBG Mobile has reportedly initiated a conversation with telecom giant Airtel for the game publishing India rights. According to a report from Entrackr “PUBG is in an early conversation with Airtel for handing over distribution rights to the telecom giant. This desperation shows that PUBG has been trying hard to get back into the Indian market.”

According to a report from The Sensor Tower, PUBG Mobile has experienced a fall of 26% in the game downloads primarily because of the ban that was levied upon PUBG Mobile by the Indian Government on September 2nd under section 69A stating, “they are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, the security of the state and public order.” This concluded with Bluehole slashing ties with Tencent for the Indian market.

After the ban, it was reported that PUBG Mobile creators were in talks with Jio but the negotiation didn’t go through and now they are exploring new opportunities in the market. But will this partnership help them lift the ban? Is still the million dollars’ question

According to Entrackr report: “The gaming platform is also busy in raising a lean team in India. It has been interviewing candidates with experience of under 4 to 6 years,” but no further comments were made by Airtel or PUBG Mobile with further clarification.

With the PUBG Mobile India ban, the game has surely tanked a hit by losing one of the prominent PUBG Mobile market and players. Further details about this partnership were not made public.
