PUBG ban brings new opportunities for Indian gaming firms to boost their domestic market

PUBG ban brings new opportunities for Indian gaming firms to boost their domestic market

The ban of the famous battleground royale game PUBG in India has uplifted the Indian gaming firms to boost their domestic market share. With this, the Indian companies will be the biggest beneficiaries, as casual gamers are shifting their focus on locally available games. Last week, India's government banned over 100 Chinese apps, including the hugely popular game, among others. This has allowed Indian gaming firms to work and develop new battle royale games.

nCore Games has already announced a new India themed action game, Fau-G, last week. It is also stated that Indian IPs will work well in India, said Gondal, who had earlier founded Indiagames, which he eventually sold to Disney. "What is important is the quality of the game. Many of the gaming studios in India, including nCore, have been doing global games, so the teams (Indian studios) have the exposure. Still, they haven't worked on Indian IP before," Vishal Gondal, co-founder of nCore Games, stated.

It is now the right time for Indian companies to become a much more vital part of the global gaming industry. India is investing significantly to grow the Indian market share and capture a larger part of the worldwide market. This is also an opportunity for Indian gaming studios to go global and get worldwide recognition.
