According to TechCrunch, KRAFTON continues to do business aggressively in India. It has announced that it will spend $150 million over the next 2–3 years to invest in the country’s gaming ecosystem.

In a comment to TechCrunch, the company assured that its plans are not related to the recent permission of the Indian authorities to re-launch Battlegrounds Mobile India – a regional version of PUBG Mobile – in the country. As a reminder, the game was banned in India from July 2022 to May 2023.

KRAFTON said it had invested about $140 million in 11 Indian gaming startups and the local gaming ecosystem since 2021, including Nodwin Gaming, Loco and Pratilipi. KRAFTON considers India one of its major markets and believes the investment will pay off.
