PUBG Mobile comes under scrutiny amidst increasing geopolitical tensions between India and China

PUBG Mobile – which has made gaming mainstream in India and created an entire ecosystem of players, content creators, organisations, teams, and tournament organisers – has come under scrutiny from the government following a crackdown on Chinese apps which ‘violate national security and individual privacy.’

A report on the Economic Times revealed that the Government of India has made a list of 275 Chinese apps which could be banned depending upon further findings. A ban on the game threatens to jeopardise the entire Indian esports ecosystem, which is largely built on the back of the popularity of the title.

AFK Gaming is an India-based esports media and content company that aims to provide quality and consistent coverage about teams, players, tournaments and competitive video games with a primary focus on the Asian region.
