PUBG Mobile services shutting down today, details
It also expressed its regret around the ban of the game while thanking its fans for the support since the launch. Most fans thanked the company for the journey and the experience in the comments below the announcement. However, an extremely small portion of the comments also questioned the impact of this announcement on the game. These comments inquire if the players can continue to play the game from Asia servers. PUBG Corp did not reveal any details that addressed these concerns.
A few fans also asked if the company would start filtering out Indian IP addresses from the game after the shutdown. Unless the company takes these steps, the players can continue to play the game using the Asia servers with higher ping timings. If PUBG Corp goes ahead with strict enforcement, then players will either use other means (like VPN) to play the game. Otherwise, they will have to shift to one of the many PUBG Mobile alternatives available online. We would like to re-emphasize that playing PUBG Mobile is still against the law.
