Even as rumours are abuzz that PUBG Mobile is coming back to India, a short teaser video of PUBG Mobile India showed up on the Indian YouTube channel earlier today. But the teaser was taken down.

This teaser did not reveal any release date or an approximate time frame, GSMArena reported on Friday.

"However, the fact that the video showed up is a strong indication of its own that the game will soon be released in the country again," the report said.

PUBG's developer, recently, announced the pre-registration for a new battle royale game, called New State, on the Google Play store. However, it excluded India as the company is working on re-launching PUBG Mobile in the country.

Recently, the company had also posted few job listings for the India subsidiary, including an Investment and Strategy Analyst.

However, there is no official statement from the company about its relaunching plans in the country.

The Indian government had on September 2 banned 118 apps on national security concerns, including the immensely popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile, under Section 69A of the Information Technology Act.

PUBG, which has more than 600 million downloads and 50 million active players globally, had nearly 33 million users in India.
