PUBG Mobile, the sleeper hit cellular game, will complete all support and accessibility for consumers in India on October 30, two weeks later New Delhi prohibited the match from the planet’s second biggest internet market over cybersecurity concerns.
India on September 2 Prohibited PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite, and over 100 Programs with Hyperlinks to China.
The ban came after India banned TikTok and dozens of other popular Chinese programs in late June.
These programs were”prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defence of India, security of state and public order,” the nation’s IT Ministry said on either instances.

But unlike other apps that are affected that became inaccessible within days — if not hours PUBG Mobile programs remained available from the nation for consumers that already had them installed in their phones, tablet computers and PCs.
In reality, according to a popular cellular penetration firm, PUBG Mobile had retained over 90 percent of its yearly active users in the nation, a mobile-first marketplace where 99% of smartphones operate Android, in the weeks after New Delhi’s order.
(After the ban, Google and Apple pulled PUBG Mobile programs from their program shops in India. But shortly guides about the best way best to work round the ban and get and install the programs became popular on many forums)
PUBG Mobile had roughly 50 million active users in India, thousands of users before Call of Duty: Mobile and Fortnite and another mobile game in the nation.
“PUBG Mobile kickstarted an whole ecosystem — by esports organisations to groups and just a cottage industry of streamers which made the most of its spectator sport-friendly gameplay,” said Rishi Alwani, a long-time analyst of Indian gambling marketplace and publisher of information outlet The Mako Reactor.
“Granted Tencent did a great deal of the heavy lifting in construction it outside, however, the match quality itself was heads and shoulders above what most Indians were utilized to on tablets. And that is why many kept coming back, a few finally monetising too,” he added.
South Korea-headquartered PUBG Mobile tried to assuage New Delhi’s concern with cutting ties with Tencent, the match’s publishing and distribution partner in India.
