You might be wondering how did Krafton come into the picture?
PUBG mobile was banned by the Indian government in September 2020 as it was owned by the Chinese company Tencent. Following the ban, Tencent transferred the ownership to the south Korean game maker Krafton. Krafton then came up with its modified variant of PUBG mobile to launch in the Indian market and called it Battleground Mobile India.
