The gaming industry was ruled by PUBG in India during its run and had a huge fanbase. Unfortunately, the fun was short-lived after it was included in the list of 118 apps getting banned in India. Efforts are being put by PUBG Corporation but still the Union Government has refused to revoke the ban on the game. Recently, an ad for a job posting in India led people to believe that the developers might be thinking of a comeback in India.
The job was posted by PUBG Corporation at the job hunting website LinkedIn a few days ago.
The job title is Corporate Development Division Manager – India and the location is Delhi. This full-time associate-level job requires a candidate to work from home or the city of India where PUBG will be set up. The job description says the supporting of the setup of PUBG India with guidance from headquarters of Krafton Inc. The candidate needs to take part in the process of corporate strategic planning and develop an investment strategy for sectors related to gaming and work with internal leaders and external advisors.
Around 200 applicants have already registered for the position. Expectations are that PUBG Corporation is confident about returning to India while appointing workforce to manage the process.
In the month of September this year, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology or MEITY announced a list of 118 applications which included PUBG getting banned in India. After that, PUBG makers have been trying to reverse the ban by declaring about cutting ties with Tencent to handle the franchise in India with other things.
But the attempts have failed as it has been announced by the government that the ban is for permanent. The ministry also said that the ban will not be revoked, not because its a Chinese app but because of its violent nature.
