FAU-G vs PUBG
Vishal Gondal had mentioned again in September that the ban on PUBG was coincidental and that his crew had been working on FAU-G since May whereas making ready for a launch in October. In reality, it was a part of three video games that they have been working on, of which one is a cricket sport and the opposite related with music.

However, in direction of end-September Gondal had confirmed that FAU-G would launch by end-October.
Gondal had mentioned then that nCore’s determination to focus on these video games started a number of months earlier and was based mostly on the misplaced perception that Indian sport builders can’t produce high quality video games.
