pubg partners with microsoft returning to india soon

PUBG mobile, a highly popular game worldwide, recently faced a ban due to data privacy issues with Tencent in India. After a month, it was banned from App Stores, the players could still play the game unofficially, but last week, it closed its servers in India, which made the online game unplayable.

Now again, Krafton Inc, the South-Korean company that owns PUBG Corp., has signed a deal with Microsoft that will let the PUBG parent host the game on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. It had already cut ties with Tencent for game publishing in India.

"With privacy and data security being a top priority for Krafton, the company will be working with Microsoft to ensure personal data protection through Azure. The collaboration will ensure that privacy rights are respected, and relevant software will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations," the company said in a press release.

According to reports, an advertisement featuring several prominent PUBG Mobile players is currently being shot for the game's return in India. The source also added that a Bollywood actor would also be a part of this advertisement. The announcement of the game's return could be expected by November 13th. With the report about the advertisement, these claims appear to grow stronger. A few days earlier, several prominent PUBG Mobile players hinted about a possible announcement around Diwali. After Krafton announced a deal with Microsoft Azure to safeguard the privacy and user data, the products of Krafton and its subsidiaries, including PUBG Mobile, will be using Azure's service.
