Parents in India, PUBG Mobile has a message for you
PUBG, the battle royale title, has become quite a hit in the last few months. The game has garnered several million users around the globe. However, the game’s popularity, bordering on addiction, in some cases has become a cause of concern for many parents across the country.
In fact, there have been talks of banning the game in several states in the country. A Goa minister recently termed the game ‘demon’ in every house. He also called for a law in the sate to curb the multi-player game. Gujarat government too issued a directive banning students from playing PUBG in school. Many other states too have issued similar directives.
Responding to the raging controversy, PUBG Mobile has issued a statement wherein they have promised to bring in features and enhancements that will help promote ‘healthy and balanced in-game environment’.
