Honor of Kings set to launch India version in June 2024

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Honor of Kings, a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) title developed by Level Infinite (Tencent), is likely to launch in India in June 2024.

The launch will take place via a rebrand of Clash of Titans, an existing MOBA available in India that is published by Actoz SG, a Singapore-based publisher. Actoz SG and its parent, the Korea-based Actoz Soft, are reportedly controlled by the China-based Shengqu Games. Our past research showed that Tencent had signed an agreement with Actoz SG to operate the game in India, after Arena of Valor was banned by regulators.

Currently, Honor of Kings is available in regions including MENA, Turkey, Eastern Europe, and South Asia (excluding India). The move to publish Honor of Kings through the Singapore entity is likely being taken to satisfy the Indian government’s concerns over data privacy and national security.

Since 2020, India has banned several Chinese-owned or developed games, including Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). However, the ban on the battle royale title has since been lifted, with BGMI being published via South Korea’s Krafton.
