The new PUBG mobile game is believed to be a successor to PUBG Mobile, which is one of the most popular battle royale games of all time. The new game was announced in February this year and has been available for pre-registrations on Google Play ever since with iOS pre-order service to start soon.
It is important to note that the game has not been made available in India and users will find no option to pre-register on any platform. PUBG Mobile was banned in India last year due to it being linked with the Chinese company Tencent. The company is said to be working on re-releasing PUBG Mobile in India.
We’re happy to report that we’ve hit over 10 MILLION #PUBGNEWSTATE pre-registrations on #GooglePlay. We’re humbled by the community’s overwhelming response and can’t wait to share our new battlegrounds experience with you later in 2021. pic.twitter.com/WN3ptw3ylq
