The Government of India on September 2 issued an order to ban 118 Chinese mobile apps including PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite under Section 69A of Information Act 2009.
As a result, both the games were removed from the Google Play Store listing. However, users could have played the game if they had already installed it on their smartphones.
But from October 30 even that will not be possible as Tencent Games has announced that they are terminating all service and access for users in India via its PUBG Mobile’s official Facebook page.
The post mentions that Tencent Games will terminate all the services for both PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite. Apart from this, the post also clarified that all the rights to publish PUBG Mobile in India will be returned to the PUBG Corporation. Tencent Games has also emphasized the fact that protecting user’s data has always been their top priority and they have always followed the Government’s laws and regulations on data protection.
The rights to publish PUBG Mobile in India will be returned to the owner of the PUBG intellectual property.
