The Indian Ministry of Electronics and IT banned 118 mobile applications in September, including the popular game PUBG Mobile. After many attempts to get back on track and bring their fans the title of Royal War, PUBG Corporation finally gave up and announced that it will terminate all services and user rights.
Starting today, October 30th, PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite will stop working. The rights of the PUBG mobile brand will be returned to the owners of intellectual property rights, and Tencent Games will no longer own the Indian franchise rights.
However, PUBG Corporation did not disclose any content of the player data-delete it or keep it (and how to save it).
The termination of PUBG Mobile is part of the second round of bans by the Indian government. The first platform in June includes popular platforms such as TikTok, WeChat, and even certain applications related to Xiaomi, such as Mi Community and Mi Video Call.
