PUBG Mobile finally banned in India
Tencent Games, after several failed attempts to bring multiplayer game back PUBG Mobile to the Indian market, announced its discontinuation of services and access to users in India. Starting from October 30, 2020, the PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite projects will stop working in India. All rights to the PUBG Mobile brand will be transferred to the intellectual property owners, thus Tencent Games will no longer have the rights to the franchise in India.
Tencent Games has already announced the unpleasant news to all PUBG Mobile fans on the official portal in India, leaving an official statement:
We deeply regret this outcome, and sincerely thank you for your support and love for PUBG MOBILE in India.
The closure of the PUBG Mobile project on the territory of the state is not the first ban of the Indian government. Back in June 2020, the government blocked the popular TikTok and WeChat platform, and some Xiaomi Mi Community and Mi Video Call apps.
