PUBG Mobile servers and services are shutting down from 30th October 2020 in India. From today, no one will be able to play PUBG Mobile anymore. The company has posted a post on Facebook saying it will shut down all the servers and services in India.
PUBG Mobile Will Not be Played Anymore in India
The company has posted the same message on the game’s community forum also. The game was banned in India by the Government along with other 117 Chinese apps. All Chinese apps were banned for security reasons.
Recently, PUBG posted a post on LinkedIn for hiring corporate development Division Manager. With this post, all of them speculated that the game could return to India. But as per the latest reports, now we are sure that the game might not return to India.
On Facebook, PUBG Mobile announced about shutting the services. The 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. The rights to publish PUBG MOBILE in India will be returned to the owner of the PUBG intellectual property.”
The game was already removed from Indian Google Play Store and Apple iOS App Store. But who already had the game installed on their devices could play games as the game servers were available. However, now the servers will be removed from India, so no one will be able to play PUBG anymore.
