As the Indian Government surprised everyone by banning the popular battle royale game Pubg Mobile in India, there has been another announcement made by bollywood start Akshay Kumar about the new FAU-G game for India.
By supporting @narendramodi’s AtmaNirbhar movement, Akshay Kumar took his Twitter account to announce the Indian Pubg like game called “FAU-G” which is also called as “Fearless And United: Guards”.
The India Game Development company nCore Games is working on this project, which is founded by Vishal Gondal, who is also CEO of GOQII.
When Gondal asked about the FAUG to compare with PUBG, he said that FAU-G would not be competing to the PUBG.
Since Akshay Kumar announced the upcoming FAUG game, everyone started trolling the game on the social media platforms. Considering the hate, nCore Game released the official statement you know should.
According to the statement from Twitter:
Clarification This statement is being issued to address certain ongoing conversations/rumors on social media that FAU:G was conceptualized by late actor Shri Sushant Singh Rajput, which is completely false and baseless.
nCore was founded in 2019 by an Indian entrepreneur Mr. Vishal Gondal and Mr Dayanadhi MG & others who have been in the gaming industry for over 20 years. It involves a team of over 25 programmers, artists, testers, designers who have worked on top gaming titles in the past and are currently developing the FAU:G game.
Vishal Gondal started his 1st gaming company Indiagames in 1998 which was sold 100% to Walt Disney in 2012 and he is also called the father of Indian gaming industry.
nCore is a mobile games and interactive entertainment company, based out of Bangalore, India. We create and publish category-defining mobile games for the Indian market. Mr. Akshay Kumar has been a mentor to nCore. FAU:G is designed and developed by the team at nCore.All copyright & intellectual property related to FAU:G is owned by nCore.
Further, there are stories doing the rounds that the poster of our action game, FAU-G, is plagiarised. We would like to further clarify that we have officially bought the license to use the image from Shutter Stock. Additionally, this is just a teaser poster and we would be releasing the official game Title Screen and in-game art soon.
To protect our interests, nCore and our founders will be initiating all the necessary actions as may be legally advised against all such persons including any foreign nationals who may be percolating such baseless and fake news for the reasons best known to them. #JaiHind
Many people also assumed that it was all set up as the government banned the game and nCore Games announced the game. To answer all the trolls, nCore Game said that they have been working on this project from the last couple of months, and it is the great coincidence that PUBG is banned and people would love to see the Indian version of PUBG with the new name FAUG.
Talking about the release date of FAUG game, the Tweet from Akshay Kumar and nCore Games indicated that the game is coming soon. But in the recent interview CEO Vishal Gondal hinted that the game is releasing later in October this year.
