WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
We can’t really say whether the changes in policy will or will not lead to PUBG Mobile being banned in India. But we are pretty confident that the game developers will do their best to keep the game up and running in the country. The reason is pretty obvious, the sheer amount of popularity that the game has in India is something that Tencent is not going to ignore. With that, India now has a very solid community of PUBG Mobile gamers including semi-professional and professional players that are earning rather well via means of content streaming and esports tournaments.
