PUBG Removed From App Store and Google Play Store in India Following Ban

Stephen Warwick, writing for iMore:

PUBG Mobile is the biggest mobile game in India with more than 50 million monthly active players, but has fallen foul of government bans on primarily Chinese apps, PUBG Mobile is made by Tencent Games.

A new report from 91mobiles says that following the ban on Wednesday, Apple and Google have both removed both PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite from their respective app stores in the country.

PUBG remains available in the rest of the world, of course, but there’s some irony here in that Apple spent last week heavily promoting PUBG as an alternative to Fortnite, which, of course, is now available nowhere in the world on the App Store.
