After the recent Indo-China clash at the Galwan Valley, which led to the death of 20 Indian soldiers, many Indian citizens have risen up to the occasion with proteststo boycott Chinese products and services. Amid this movement on social media, many have removed China-based apps from their respective phones and have vowed to not use Chinese products again. A raging debate over famous multiplayer game PUBG is also ongoing on social media. On September 02, 2020, the government of India decided to ban PUBG Mobile among 118 apps in India.

The Indo-China clash across the LAC has created a huge dilemma among gamers who have beenhooked to the famous battle royale gamePUBG, with many taking to Google to find out whether the game has Chinese ownership. There were speculations all over regarding the ownership of the game and many were able to find that at least the PC version of the game wasn"t Chinese.

Launched in 2017, the game was the mastermind of Brendan Greene, the brains behind some other games like ARMA 2 andDay Z: Battle Royale. For PC, the game was designed and developed by PUBG Corporation which is actually a subsidiary of South Korean game developing company named Bluehole. To enter the gaming market of China, Bluehole held hands with the Chinese gaming company Tencent, which went on to introduce themobile version of the game. Although it was an instant hit in the Chinese market, the game failed to get the approval of the Chinese government and hence couldn"t monetize it.

On the contrary, PUBG, after a few attempts, got banned in China as the government thought it would put an adverse effect on the minds of the young and aspiring generation and lead to severe consequences.
