The E-Sports gamers were dealt with a major blow after the central government banned Pubg in India. The cabinet took such a decision after they found Pubg prejudicial to the sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, the security of the state, and public order. Now, the South Korean company that owns the game has taken a big step to get the game unbanned in India. They have now revoked Tencent’s license in India.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS is originally owned by a South Korean company. But, the franchise of the mobile version was held by a Chinese company Tencent Games. The Indian administration feels that they used to share the details with Beijing risking users’ privacy. This step was taken in the wake of ongoing tension going on between India and China on the border.

As the company explores ways to provide its own PUBG experience for India in the near future, it is committed to doing so by sustaining a localized and healthy gameplay environment for its fans,” the company said in a statement.
