Share on:

The founder of the Indian gaming company, nCore has responded to the allegations being levelled against his newly announced action game, FAU-G stating that the ban on the popular PUBG by the government was purely coincidental. Gondal has claimed that FAU-G  or Fearless And United: Guards is not competitive with PUBG and was always slated for an October release. 
The company has not disclosed the data of the launch of the game but has said that it was being developed actively by the team since May 2020. The announcement by Bollywood star Akshay Kumar comes in the backdrop of tension in the Sino-Indian relations at the Line of Actual Control (LAC). The government has banned 118 Chinese applications citing privacy and data concerns which include the popular PUBG, Creative Destruction, Rules of Survival among others. 
Vishal Gondal took to Twitter, to announce the game days after the ban was announced, fueling the speculation regarding the ban as it presents itself as an alternative to the users. He further added that the company’s vision for the game corresponds to the call by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India ‘Atmanirbhar.’ It has further committed to donating 20 per cent of the profits to the Bharat Ke Veer trust, a not-for-profit geared towards helping the veterans of the Indian armed forces. 
There have been several claims following the launch reveal of the game that the launch of the game is timed to take maximum advantage of the LAC tensions between India and China. The company has not responded to these allegations as of yet and has remained firm in its statement of purpose.
