Crafton Inc., a South Korean company owned by PUBGG Corporation, has signed an agreement with Microsoft that will allow PUBG Parents to host the game on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud platform.

The deal allows Crafton to host products run directly by the company and its subsidiaries, which, in addition to PUBG and PCUG Mobile, were banned in India two months ago.

PubG Corporation still owns the rights to the popular Battle Royale mobile game.

“As privacy and data security is a top priority for Crafton, the company will work with Microsoft to ensure the security of personal data by Azure,” the company said in a press release.

“The collaboration will ensure that the right to privacy is respected and that the relevant software fully complies with all applicable laws and regulations.”

Crafton will also work with the American tech giant to initiate the verification process, ensuring the storage of personally identifiable information of its players that meets all the requirements in all territories.

While reports suggest that PUBG Mobile is planning to return to India with such cloud deals, other indications are that data security and Chinese ownership were only part of the reason why the app was banned.

A TechCrunch report notes that PUBGG Corporation has secretly informed some streamers that it expects the game to return to the country by the end of the year. Some streamers are expecting an official announcement about their return from Diwali soon.

In addition, Crafton is working to redesign the game to meet government restrictions. The game developer had earlier said that it had localized its Indian servers before the ban.

While the game was banned on Google Play and the App Store, it was running in India until last month, before PUBG cut off all its services and access to users in India.
