Indian fans of the smash-hit game PUBG Mobile are all set to bid adieu to the game on October 30 this year as Tencent Games is terminating all service and access to the game for India's gamers. The move comes as a follow up to the Indian government’s decision to ban over a hundred apps in the country, including PUBG.

Tencent Games has confirmed that it will revoke the services of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Lite from India today. These apps by Tencent Games remained unaffected by the blanket ban, which the Indian Government had enforced on over a hundred apps.

Google and Apple had removed the PUBG apps from their app stores following the announcement of the ban. But the gamers found a work-around to obtain and install apps. But with the revocation of the server access, Indian gamers will have to say their goodbyes to the game.

“Dear Fans, To comply with the interim order of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology dated September 2, 2020, Tencent Games will terminate all service and access for users in India to PUBG MOBILE Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG MOBILE Lite (together, “PUBG Mobile”) on October 30, 2020,” said a PUBG Mobile India Facebook post.
