“Majority of the mobile gamers in India rely on Pubg Mobile for their income, whether that’s streaming or playing competitively. The information regarding the ban was not provided to the players in advance. I have friends from India like Scout, Owais, Daljit. TikTok also got banned over there a while ago but this is very sad. I and my team will be looking at what kind of effect will this have on the global side and the esports scene for PUBG Mobile in future.”
