Krafton asks YouTubers to stop referring Battlegrounds Mobile as PUBG Mobile in fear of getting banned

Krafton has reportedly asked the content creators to stop calling their latest title by the name of PUBG Mobile in fears of getting blocked by the Indian government once again. According to a report by IGN India, a Whatsapp message was allegedly sent by Krafton to content creators which asked them to stop referring to their new game Battlegrounds Mobile India as PUBG Mobile.

PUBG Mobile has faced lots of blockages by the IT Ministry of India in the past. This game was banned in the country on the concerns over user privacy and data security. Krafton, the PUBG creators, tried their best to evade this situation but the ban was never lifted.

Krafton made a comeback in India by the announcement of PUBG Mobile India around the auspicious festival of Diwali but the hype created by this announcement did not last very long as a release date or timeline for this new game was never revealed. They promised to develop a completely new version of PUBG Mobile but could never deliver it.

The developers are back in the market after announcing a new game called Battlegrounds Mobile India. This game is just a rebranded version of PUBG Mobile yet it looks like the developers are trying to avoid refer it to PUBG Mobile in any way.

As per the reports, a Whatsapp message asked the content creators to stop using PUBG Mobile as an alternative name for ‘Battlegrounds Mobile India’. A part of this message reads as follows:

“We would also suggest to not use PUBGM in your content anymore as it was banned and we don’t want to be banned again. We would recommend using worlds like Battlegrounds Mobile India, Korean game, Indian version in your content.”

The authenticity of this message is unverified as the officials have not explicitly shared this information. If it turns out to be true, Krafton might be trying to evade yet another roadblock in the launch of Battlegrounds Mobile India.
