PUBG Mobile India may relaunch under Battlegrounds Mobile India name
Krafton or PUBG Studio has not made any official announcement regarding the change of PUBG Mobile to Battlegrounds Mobile India. However, PUBG Studio did change the official handles on Facebook, and YouTube to reflect the change. The company confirmed this change on the PUBG Mobile India discord server likely making things more official. In addition, it also removed or archived all the posts that it had made on these accounts in the past. It will likely help the company dissociate from the old name and branding going forward.
Krafton contributes Rs. 1.5 Crore for COVID relief in India
Besides the information around the rename and possible relaunch, Krafton also announced a donation worth Rs. 1.5 Crore to the PM CARES Fund through its local branch. As part of the contribution, Changhan (CH) Kim, the company’s CEO, also issued a statement. Kim stated, “India is navigating a challenging time with the current wave of COVID-19. We remain committed to supporting the efforts of the Government in battling this unprecedented crisis.”
He went on to add, “We hope our contribution to the PM CARES Fund will help the aid efforts currently operational on ground.” This is not the first time the company has announced a major contribution to India. The company also announced a massive investment late last year to relaunch PUBG Mobile. Though this COVID-19 relief donation is likely not related to the relaunch of the game. However, we will have to wait and watch if it affects the stance of the Indian government.
Battlegrounds Mobile India Expected Release Date and Time
As we all know that PUBG Mobile has 1.5 updates that are releasing on July 6th, 2021, so it can be inferred that Battlegrounds Mobile India 1.5 update will also be released on the same date i.e. July 6th, 2021 & expected release time of the update might be 5.00 PM.
