PUBG Mobile to Stop Access for Users in India, Following September Ban

Pubg Ban

PUBG Mobile will complete access for users in India starting Friday, October 30. The move comes almost two weeks after the authorities banned the popular battle royale game along with its lightweight variant PUBG Mobile Lite, and other 116 apps in early September. That ban attracted the elimination of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite from Google Play and Apple App Store from the country, though both games remained accessible for consumers who already had them installed on their phones and tablet computers. This was unlike the majority of the other prohibited programs that all became inaccessible following the ban was imposed in the nation.

On Thursday, PUBG Mobile announced via its official Facebook page in India that Tencent Games, the present printing and supply partner of this game in the country, would terminate all service and accessibility for Indian users to PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite.

“Protecting user data has always been a top priority and we’ve always complied with applicable data protection laws and laws in India. All users’ gameplay info is processed transparently as disclosed in our privacy policy,” PUBG Mobile explained.

India prohibited PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite along with other programs with their hyperlinks to China. The ban was enforced under section 69A of the Information Technology Act and was estimated”in the interest of sovereignty and integrity” of the nation.

“This move will safeguard the interests of crores of Indian cellular and internet users,” The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology had said in a media release announcing that the ban in September.

Soon after the limitation came into power by the government, PUBG Corporation announced that it’d decided to no longer authorize the authorizePUBG Mobile franchise to Shenzhen-based Tencent Games in India and take over all its publishing responsibilities inside India. That move was in reaction to the concerns over the part of the Chinese business. But, it didn’t help bring some changes to the ban.

As a result of the latest shift, PUBG Mobile programs will no longer be accessible in India. It is, however, unclear if users would continue to play the game with a virtual private network (VPN).

“We deeply regret this result, and truly thank you for your service and love for PUBG Mobile in India,” the match said on its FB page.
