Since, the ban of PUB-G gamers are sad about it. Many of the twitter account user accused that poster has no originality and even the name is similar to PUB-G. A twitter account claimed that the poster is actually cover of a novel Ghosts from the Jungle by Russ Stallings.

It was found that it is a stock image , presumably of the US Army, which has been used many times. The difference between Stock image and FAU-G poster is that the poster ahs Indian Flag on the uniform.
Many tweets are now pointing that this is a Stock Image with the only change that's added is the Indian Flag to show that #FAUG is an Indian Game.
I really hope that this was unknowingly done & *HOPE* that the game turns out to be a real one and not copied.
