In early September, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology imposed a ban on 118 apps under Section 69A. This list included the likes of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite, two of the most popular battle royale titles on the mobile platform.

Glimmers of hope were then ignited in fans when a LinkedIn job post by PUBG Corporation was uncovered, looking for a Corporate Development Division Manager for the Indian region.

However, in a recent Facebook post, PUBG Mobile announced that Tencent Games has decided to terminate all services of these titles. And now, the players aren’t even able to open the official website of PUBG Mobile Lite.
