This latest investment's main motto is to maintain some kind of presence in the Indian gaming market. Krafton is the owner and publisher of the popular battle royale game PUBG Mobile and PUBG. The Chief executive of Krafton, Changhan Kim, has stated that the company is looking for different ways to invest in the region.

Nodwin Gaming is an esports company based in Mumbai, and it is a part of Nazara Technologies. The company made an announcement regarding the partnership and two esports events that will soon be held in Asia. Co-Founder and MD of Nodwin Gaming, Akshat Rathee, has stated that esports will continue to be a pillar for sports entertainment, and it fosters the growth of technology in several nations. As of now, PUBG is banned in India due to cybersecurity reasons, and Krafton is looking forward to launching a new version of PUBG in India.
