Followed by a banning order in India from today PUBG Mobile will shut down all its services and access for Indian users from October 30 that is today. To recall the popular Chinese mobile game was banned in India by the Indian government over cybersecurity concerns on September 2. Both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite along with 116 other Chinese apps we banned from the Play Store in the county. Prior to this, the short video streaming app was also axed by the Government in July for similar reasons.
All of the banned apps were then removed from the Google Play Store and Apple Apps Store in India. But those who have already had them installed on their devices are still able to access the services. Now PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite services will not be accessible anymore in the country as the Tencent Games will soon terminate all the services in the country. Tencent took to Facebook to announce the termination of all service and access for users in India to PUBG MOBILE Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG MOBILE Lite from October 30. The Facebook post reads, “Dear Fans, To comply with the interim order of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology dated September 2, 2020, Tencent Games will terminate all service and access for users in India to PUBG MOBILE Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG MOBILE Lite (together, “PUBG Mobile”) on October 30, 2020.”
This development came after PUBG Corporation recently withdrew its partnership with Tencent Games. However, this decision has left its fans disappointed as most of them were expecting that sooner or later the ban might be lifted from PUBG Mobile. So, in effect from October 30, those users in India who were still able to play the game will not be able to access its services.
