PUBG Mobile drops out of the top 10 on the Google Play Store
PUBG Mobile isn't listed in the top 10 on the Google Play Store anymore. However, it was still the 7th most downloaded game in August on the Apple App Store. As a result of PUBG Mobile's ban in India, it is expected to receive a massive slump in downloads in September.
PUBG Mobile was banned in the country on the 2nd of September. Popular battle royale games like Free Fire and COD Mobile are slowly acquiring PUBG Mobile's user base.
Among Us is yet to become an absolute hit and reach the top 5 on the Google Play Store. It will be worth seeing if the game manages to retain its spot on the top 10 list in September.Published 17 Sep 2020, 11:30 IST
