PUBG Mobile’s parent company PUBG Corporation has issued a media statement revealing that it is severing ties with Tencent Games in India. The company has also clarified that the game is owned and developed by PUBG Corporation which is a South Korean gaming company.
“PUBG Corporation fully understands and respects the measures taken by the government as the privacy and security of player data is a top priority for the company. It hopes to work hand-in-hand with the Indian government to find a solution that will allow gamers to once again drop into the battlegrounds while being fully compliant with Indian laws and regulations,” the company said in a statement to the media.
PUBG Mobile 1.0 update brings a host of new features, changes and optimisations to the gameplay mechanisms. Players can expect revamped graphics, lighting, environments and design changes to areas like Mansion, Mylta Power and more. The devs have added textures and more details to the game such as improved particle effects and quality so things like water and sky will feel more life-like.
