PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite will no longer work from Friday (October 30) to Indian users who had downloaded them before the government banned PUBG last month.

In a statement on Facebook, PUBG Mobile said it will “terminate all service and access” for users in India on October 30.

“Dear Fans, To comply with the interim order of the ministry of electronics and information technology dated 2 September 2020, Tencent Games will terminate all service and access for users in India to PUBG Mobile Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG Mobile Lite on 30 October 2020.
