Moreover, another report from Reuters, reveals the ban will not lift despite PUBG Corp taking over publishing rights from China’s Tencent. In addition, the source informed Reuters that it is because the game is violent in nature.

Earlier, PUBG Corporation took over publishing responsibilities for PUBG Mobile from China-based Tencent Games in India. It pointed towards a possibility for the game to come back to India. However, an unnamed source to Reuters says that the new ownership structure is unlikely to change things immediately.

As per the report, the source said, “The violent nature of the game has been the cause of many complaints from all quarters. That does not change with the change in ownership rights.”
