PUBG Mobile has just updated to Android and iOS to kick off what is referred to as a new era of the game, however, the celebrations were abruptly interrupted by an unpleasant news: the title has returned to the list of Chinese applications banned in recent days by the Indian government.
As PUBG players will know, India is an incredibly important market for the mobile version of the famous battle royale (to the point that a lite version has been developed, also banned) and PUBG Corporation certainly has no intention of staying. to watch while its user is stolen. So here comes a completely unexpected but necessary move: the company has announced on the official website that it has revoked the publishing rights previously granted to Tencent Games, at least as regards distribution in India.
In short, the quickest and most effective choice seems to be to eliminate any relationship with China, in this case by abruptly cutting the bridges with your publisher. From this moment, in fact, Tencent no longer has any rights on the PUBG Mobile brand (in India) and PUBG Corporation has confirmed that it is working to proceed with the self-publication of the title and the Lite variant.
Waiting to find out if this move will be extended to other markets in the future, the company announced that new details regarding the release date of the new version will soon arrive.
