PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile might be banned in the US soon

Right now, two of the biggest games on mobiles are PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile. Both of these games have changed the face of mobile gaming. These two games are not just played in specific regions, but all over the world.

Now, there are reports that both the games may be banned in the US, mainly because they come from a Chinese developers, Tencent Games. These reports come after US President Donald Trump announced that he has moved to ban TikTok and WeChat in the country.

A change in the future of Mobile Gaming?

While TikTok is another story altogether, banning WeChat and in turn its parent company Tencent would have a cascading result.

Tencent is not only responsible for developing WeChat but also popular mobile games. These games include PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile. This could result in the banning of these two popular games as well. Tencent Games is yet to make a statement regarding the matter.

As of now, there is no concrete evidence whether the two games will be banned or not, but it would be safe to assume that some sort of action will be taken against it.

As for India, PUBG Mobile has also come under fire and it’s fate now hangs in the balance. The Ministry of IT and technology has just banned 47 more Chinese apps in India.

The decision comes after the body had earlier removed a number of apps that originated in China. These were banned on the grounds of lapses of data privacy.

To combat this, PUBG Mobile announced a new privacy policy for players in India, which you can read about here.
