Sabyasachi Bose, a professional gamer said, “It can be said beyond reasonable doubt PUBG Mobile is holding the flag of Indian eSports because of its massive audience and investment. And if gets banned, it will be a huge loss for the eSports ecosystem in India,”

As per Rushindra Sinha, the founder of Global Esports, “Tournament prize money in India grew 180% YoY (Year on Year) in 2019. The single most important driving factor has been PUBG Mobile. Although we’re just halfway through the year there has already been a total of 5 crores in prize money from PUBG Mobile tournaments,”

If you look at the market, there are more options available to switch from PUBG, like Fortnite, Call of Duty, and more. But these games still don’t have the same craze as the Player Unknown’s Battle Ground.
