PUBG is looking for an Indian gaming company to partner and reverses the ban it faced due to its ties with Tencent Games. Since the ban of PUBG earlier this month, South Korea-based Corporation has cut ties with Tencent Games.
According to LiveMint, negotiations are going on to pass on the rights to an Indian gaming firm. The new licensing agreement is already in the making. This future partner will be dealing with the distribution of the game whereas PUBG Corporation will retain the publishing rights of the game which was not the case earlier.
“Ownership is only one of the concerns. But there are several other issues, based on which the ban has been ordered. The concerns are related to data privacy security, activity inside the phone, etc.,” a senior government official said.
The official blog post from PUBG quoted “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 explores ways to provide its own PUBG experience for India in the near future, it is committed to doing so by sustaining a localized and healthy gameplay environment for its fans,” it added.
