Microsoft and Krafton had made an announcement today that PUBG Mobile and system game will be coming to Azure. As per the official statement from Microsoft, “Krafton [is] working with Microsoft Azure to host its portfolio of multiplatform products, including PUBG Corporation’s wildly popular battle royale, PUBG on PC and consoles and PUBG Mobile.
They’re working together to ensure personal data protection through Azure and to ensure that privacy rights are respected, and relevant software will be in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.” One of the major reasons for choosing Azure was personal data protection, which Krafton, the parent company of PUBG has been stressing upon. Also Azure already has some of the best multiplayer games in the market which have the best security for players’ data and also offer a comprehensive set of compliance features.
Azure has been one of the primary choices of Krafton after looking down at a lot of other options. As per them, Azure already provides a lot of security features for protecting the user’s data and both the companies will further work on it to create a specific verification process for PUBGon Azure. It will ensure that the storage of personal information for the user meets the compliance. Krafton has been focusing more on the security features for the games ever since the game got banned in the Indian market due to the inclusion of Chinese publisher Tencent. Losing the Indian market led to a huge loss of revenue and user base for them.
