    PUBG Mobile, PUBG Mobile Lite to stop working India from Oct 30

    The closure of servers will deprive existing users of PUBG from playing the game on their phones. The government had banned the game in September.

    Guwahati: Two months after India banned PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite games over security concerns, developer PUBG Corp. has announced, in a Facebook post, that it is shutting down the India servers for the games on October 30.

    Though the games were taken down from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store in September 2 to prevent new downloads soon after the ban, shutting down of server means the games will no longer be available to the existing users who had downloaded it before the ban.
