Tencent No Longer Involved In PUBG Mobile India

After India bans numerous Chinese apps.

In case you hadn’t been paying attention to the news, India and China are in a bit of a squabble that has bled over into the entertainment industry, particularly with India going and banning Chinese operated apps on mobile devices following a violent incident at the border. Among the apps included in the ban is Tencent-published PUBG Mobile.

The PUBG Corporation announced yesterday on its website that in order to correct the ban that it will be taking over publishing of PUBG Mobile in India from Tencent. PUBG Mobile’s greatest installation base is in India with 175 million downloads so restoring access in the country was no doubt the number one priority for the PUBG Corp.

“In light of recent developments, PUBG Corporation has made the decision to no longer authorize the PUBG MOBILE franchise to Tencent Games in India. Moving forward, PUBG Corporation will take on all publishing responsibilities within the country. As the company explores ways to provide its own PUBG experience for India in the near future, it is committed to doing so by sustaining a localized and healthy gameplay environment for its fans.”

PUBG Corp is a South Korean company.
