Is the PUBG fever starting a new reign of gaming in India?

When we talk about socializing the first thing that comes in our mind are the social media platforms. Till now Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc were places where people connected and bonded. However, this is changing. There is a segment that is evolving every day and working around building platforms that not only help you to entertain yourself but at the same time reach out to new people and grow your friend circle. Remember, how we find people to make a group and play games like DOTA-2 and CS: GO? Well, we still enjoy playing these games in groups but now we have broadened our horizons. 

With the evolution of technology and gaming company's hunger for inventing unique gaming features, the gaming community is fed with games that are historic in its own way. For instance, in 2016 the gaming industry was revolutionized by a game that was an all-time favorite cartoon show in the 2000s and incorporated the real-time location of the user to enhance the gaming experience called Pokemon Go. Similarly this year yet again the gaming community was served by another unique game that lets you socialize with players from other cities and countries, technically with people you don't even know or have met- Players'Unknown Battleground (Pubg)

The craze of this game is so high that companies around the globe are even organizing Pubg tournaments with a huge amount of prize pool. Hence, helping gamers to win money and gain popularity. Recently India witnessed two large-scale Pubg tournaments out of which one was an international tournament- 
PUBG Mobile Campus Championship 2018
Asia Pacific Predator League 2019
The winner of Asia Pacific Predator League 2019 India Qualifier will represent the country in the main event in Thailand in 2019. 

All these games are a clear indication of how the gaming industry is progressing and how widely it is accepted not only by youngsters but even parents. Even, parents believe Pubg to be a great platform to connect with their loved ones. In other words, the reach of these games is directly proportionate to the ROI for the investors in this segment. And with time this industry is expected to boom beyond exception creating a whole you employment and marketing opportunities on its own.
