Last week we reported that PUBG Mobile had been pulled from the Google Play Store in India due to rising tensions between India and China, with the Department of Electronics and Information Technology calling it a national security risk.
Now, South Korea-based company PUBG has decided to sever ties with Chinese publishing partner Tencent – although the partnership will remain in place outside of India.
For the background, India had the most PUBG Mobile players in the world until it abruptly disappeared from the store last week, so it’s not hard to see why PUBG Corporation acted so quickly. .
From now on, all publishing tasks for PUBG Mobile in India will be done in-house, and he is already looking for new community building events and esports initiatives.
We don’t know if PUBG Corporation’s move resulted in or will bring its battle royale game back to the Google Play Store, but we suspect it likely will.
