    Highlights of the Story

    • PUBG Mobile ban in India is now permanent.
    • They had taken over publishing rights for the game from Tencent.
    • The violent nature of the game is also one of the reasons for not revoking the ban.

    PUBG Mobile was banned in India along with 118 other Chinese apps earlier this month. Attempts by authorities were going on so that the much popular game makes it’s way back to India. However, these efforts are not quite working in favor after all.

    A recent report by InsideSport reveals that the MeitY confirmed that the PUBG Mobile ban is now permanent in India.

    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.”

    PUBG Corporation is now looking into India’s concerns. They are ready to work on anything that needs improvement. The company is also reportedly in talks with Jio Platforms to bring the game back to India. However, it seems PUBG Mobile will not be returning to the app stores any time soon.
