PUBG Mobile is working progressively to comeback once again in Indian market. Working on the same direction, Tencent Games servers will be going offline from 30th October onwards, as confirmed by PUBG Mobile in their official Facebook page and Discord servers.
Even after Government of India banned the PUBG Mobile on September 2, 2020, the game servers are accessible in India and the battle royale game is easily playable for Indian users.
This is because the Tencent Games servers is still online in India but with effect from 30 October 2020, they will terminate all service and access for users in India.
In the Facebook post, the company said, “To comply with the interim order of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology dated September 2, 2020, Tencent Games will terminate all service and access for users in India to PUBG MOBILE Nordic Map: Livik and PUBG MOBILE Lite (together, “PUBG Mobile”) on October 30, 2020.”

Yes, PUBGM possibly planning to return very soon in Indian market without Tencent Games. Tencent servers’ termination is also a step in the same direction.
In Facebook post company said, “The rights to publish PUBG MOBILE in India will be returned to the owner of the PUBG intellectual property.”
