PUBG Corporation Dumps Tencent Games in India

Few days after the banning of PUBG Mobile in India, the PUBG Corporation has decided to severe ties with Tencent. In a PUBG Corporation statement, the company said, “In light of recent developments, PUBG Corporation has made the decision to no longer authorize the PUBG MOBILE franchise to Tencent Games in India. Moving forward, PUBG Corporation will take on all publishing responsibilities within the country.” It also added, “PUBG Corporation is committed to providing its unique battle royale experience to a global audience and hopes to continue engaging with its passionate player base in India.”  

PUBG Corporation also claimed that it was monitoring all the developments in India and it respects the Indian Government’s decision, that gave priority to the security and data security of the Indian users. PUBG Corporation also hopes to work ‘hand in hand’ with the government of India to find a proper solution, in order to lift the ban on PUBG Mobile.

Now it is very important to know, PUBG Mobile was originally developed by PUBG Corporation, which is a South Korean company. However, Tencent Games bought 1.5% share of the company, and it was Tencent who bought the popular gaming app PUBG Mobile in India. So, after the Galwan Valley skirmish with PLA, the Indian authorities decided to ban many Chinese apps, including PUBG Mobile, TikTok, WeChat, Mi Browser, etc. However, it must be noted, the PC version of PUBG wasn’t banned, as it was not controlled by Tencent Games.

Only after a day after the banning of PUBG, Tencent Games’ share plunged more than 2% and it lost as much as $35 billion in terms of revenue. This PUBG ban came as a big blow to the gaming giant, as India alone contributed to 24% of PUBG’s total downloads.

Also, since the banning of PUBG, Indian actor Akshay Kumar announced a new game named FAU:G, which is all set to release by the end of October. FAU:G is expected to be based on the Galwan Valley, where the skirmish between the Indian army and the PLA happened, and in a bloody hand to hand battle 20 Indian soldiers lost their lives.
