The unthinkable has happened. Starting today, millions of gamers will start losing access to the popular battle royale game, PUBG Mobile, in India. After weeks of reports and rumours, the government has finally included PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite in the list of banned apps in the country.
The latest wave of ban sees some 118 apps taken off mobile phones in India, however, the biggest casualty is definitely PUBG Mobile — a battle royale game that is arguably one of the biggest multiplayer sensations of the last few years. PUBG Mobile’s popularity is such that it sees tens of thousands of users log into the application every day, and spend not only time but also money on this multiplayer game that has become commonplace on both Android and iOS smartphones in the country.
