India has banned PUBG Mobile permanently

In July 2020, India banned 59 mobile apps from China under the grounds of “national security”, PUBG Mobile being one of them.

Since then, imitations of the game (PABJE) have emerged, with PUBG Corporation working hard to find new new ways to appease the Indian government to reverse the decision.

However as of yesterday, it looks like the decision to unban the Chinese apps remain unchanged, as the ministry has decided to ban all 59 apps permanently.

The announcement was made by India’s Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) earlier this week, who notified the 59 companies of the final verdict.

This turn of events comes after PUBG Corporation announced it was going to “bring PUBG Mobile back to India in a new avatar”.

It seems that the government did not take the news very well, and have take an entirely different stance on the matter today.

Outside India however, PUBG continues to improve the game’s user experience, adding new features and regular updates.
